We provide limited affordable urgent vet care. Please note that we are CLOSED on Saturdays – Sundays and can not take urgent appointments Mondays – Fridays after 1:30pm! We will have to redirect you to a nearby 24hr facility! We may also refer emergency care patients to an emergency clinic based off of our veterinarians’ current case load, the severity of the case, or possibility of care that can only be provided by a 24/7 ER facility.
PLEASE SEE AN EMERGENCY CLINIC FOR AFTERHOURS EMERGENCIES! Depending on the nature of your emergency, your pet may not be able to wait. For example, parvo can kill a puppy in 48 hours. If your pet has been hit by a car, they could have internal bleeding. Immediate veterinary care improves your pet’s recovery, and also can be more affordable in the long run than waiting until your pet is in worse condition.
I’m concerned about my pet’s condition and don’t know if it can wait. Should I go to an emergency vet?
If you are concerned about your pet’s condition, we always recommend visiting an emergency vet clinic near you. However, some conditions are more urgent than others. Here is a brief, non-comprehensive list of emergency appointments:
- Uncontrollable vomiting and diarrhea
- Cat that hasn’t eaten for 2 days or longer
- Urine or feces with blood
- Cat that has not urinated for 24 hours or more
- Potential broken bones
- Rapid weight loss
- Dog or cat hit by a car
- Serious cuts or bleeding injuries
- Dog straining to urinate/hasn’t urinated for over 24 hours
- Sudden prolonged seizures
- Extreme pain (whimpering or other vocal noises, panting, dilated pupils)
- Difficulty breathing
- Severe blood loss
- Collapse without being able to recover or get back up
- Suddenly having difficulty getting up or walking
- Swelling/vomiting/shaking within 24 hours of vaccination or medication administered (potential allergic reaction)
This is not a comprehensive list. If in doubt, always see an emergency vet clinic! Puppies and kittens (under 6 months) and smaller pets are more at risk and need urgent care when it comes to vomiting and diarrhea.

Affordable Urgent Vet Care
We do see a limited number of walk-ins on Mondays – Fridays, 8:00am – 1:30pm. Availability maybe limited due to number of emergency or urgent care appointments we are already seeing. Please call us ahead of time if your puppy may have parvo, or is having diarrhea, coughing, vomiting, sneezing, or urine or feces with blood so we can admit you into our isolation room.
Please call us for emergency walk-ins so we can confirm availability and prepare a room for you and see you ASAP!!
Our office visit and comprehensive exam is $39. Further treatment and diagnostics will cost more. We do our best to work with our client’s budgets, and also offer payment plans.
How much does an affordable emergency vet visit cost?
We do NOT charge extra for urgent vet care. Our office visit charge is $39. One of our experienced veterinarians will talk with you about your pet’s condition and examine your pet. We will then provide a list of recommended diagnostics and treatment in a care plan, which includes the price breakdown for each service as well.
Depending on your pet’s condition, the recommended care plan can vary quite a bit in price. For example, our typical cost for a puppy with parvo’s care, which includes a parvo test, IV fluids, medications, and other services depending on your pet’s condition, averages around $300 – $400. However, if your pet requires surgery, that could be a far more expensive care plan.
We always let you know about all recommended services, with a price breakdown ahead of time. While we do our best to work with our client’s budget, we can’t guarantee how much your pet’s care will cost before our veterinarian does an exam.
We provide payment plans through Scratchpay which has helped many of our clients who could otherwise not afford their pet’s emergency care.
We do not currently accept CareCredit or checks.
