Prompt, Effective Care When Your Pet Needs It Most

At Tier 1 Veterinary Medical Center, we understand that not all pet emergencies require a trip to the ER, but they do need immediate attention. Our Urgent Care services are designed to fill the gap between regular veterinary visits and emergency situations, providing swift and comprehensive care when your pet needs it quickly.

What is Urgent Care for Pets?

Urgent Care for pets is intended to address non-life-threatening conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment. This includes situations like minor injuries, acute illness symptoms, or complications from chronic diseases that suddenly worsen but do not pose an immediate threat to your pet's life.

Common Conditions Treated in Urgent Care

  • Mild to moderate vomiting or diarrhea
  • Minor wounds or injuries such as cuts or limping
  • Skin infections or rashes
  • Eye or ear infections
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Coughing and sneezing
  • Fevers without severe symptoms

Why Choose Urgent Care at Tier 1 Veterinary Medical Center?

  • Speed: Get quick access to care without the wait typically associated with non-emergency scheduled visits.
  • Cost-Effective: Urgent care visits are often less expensive than emergency room visits.
  • Comprehensive: Even though it's urgent care, we provide thorough examinations to ensure your pet's condition is accurately diagnosed and treated.
  • Convenience: Easy access to care during extended hours, helping you avoid the late-night or weekend fees at emergency facilities.

Our Urgent Care Process

  • Assessment: Upon arrival, your pet will be quickly assessed to determine the urgency of their condition.
  • Treatment: Our skilled veterinarians will treat your pet’s symptoms with the appropriate medications or procedures, all performed on-site.
  • Follow-Up: We'll provide you with detailed instructions for home care and, if necessary, schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your pet's recovery.

Preparing for Your Visit

To ensure a smooth visit to our Urgent Care, consider the following:

  • Call Ahead: If possible, call us when you're on your way so we can prepare for your pet’s arrival.
