PriorityVet - Pet Urgent Care is proud to have the ONLY INDEPENDENTLY OWNED, STAND-ALONE, UNAFFILIATED, EXCLUSIVELY URGENT CARE PRACTICES CURRENTLY IN EXISTENCE IN THE NATION. We are unaffiliated with any general practice encouraging unrestricted referrals from local practices. Our clinicians never have to compete for practice resources, have no hospitalized cases to tend to and provide no routine care, ever. Everyone and every resource is dedicated to our urgent care clinicians and care. This allows us to focus on non-critical cases and to be nimble, efficient and economical in our delivery of superior outpatient care in this rapidly growing niche. We diverge from traditional ERs and urgent care "departments" currently available for after-hours care. We have reduced wait times, lower bills and less stress by design.

We are NOT your typical veterinary emergency hospital! Our business hours are 4pm to 11pm daily (excluding major holidays), promoting a healthy work-life balance and allowing for the recruitment of well-qualified staff. We cater to the needs of pet owners presenting with the approximately 85% of evening cases that are not "true emergencies". Pets are treated on an out-patient basis with short-term admission for diagnostics and minor anesthetic procedures (lacerations, urethral obstruc...tion, splinting, etc). Pets requiring prolonged anesthesia, major emergency surgery, hospitalization or overnight care are referred to the closest 24-hour referral institution following any necessary emergent interventions. Pets are typically directed back to their family veterinarian for follow-up care. No routine care is provided. We incorporate Fear Free techniques into our practice to foster less stressful visits for all involved. We are fully equipped with electric lift tables in exam rooms and treatment area, in-house laboratory, digital radiography, Tonopen, ultrasound, EKG-defibrillator, blood pressure, pulse-oximetry and cloud-based practice software. Our clinicians need not compete with other departments for facility resources. Our compensation packages are tailored to the needs of employees. Come check as out! We'll pay you for your time with no strings attached!
