Our Philosophy

The mission of Animal Urgent Care is to provide excellent, affordable and accessible emergency care services for the pets of our local community. Emergency care is difficult due to the hours, expense, and stressful environment. We strive to keep compassion, cost-consciousness, and excellent service at the forefront of each and every case we see. We are proud of our staff and hospital. We put forth every effort to provide you and your pet comfortable and clean surroundings. We have the most up-to-date equipment in a brand new facility. We have decades of emergency and critical care experience among our staff and regularly exceed continuing education standards. We are proud to have achieved American Animal Hospital Association certification in 2012.


Our Facility

We strive to make our facility comfortable for both you and your pet. While we have some of the latest technology and equipment, we have done our best to create an environment that minimizes the stress that our patients feel, as many are already undergoing a lot by the time they are brought to our hospital. This helps return them to your home sooner, and ultimately in a healthier and happier state.

Karma, our 7-mo old Airedale, was bitten by a baby rattlesnake. The doctors and staff provided amazing care, and support. They were efficient, detailed, professional and treated Karma as we expected, with lots of love and attention. Karma made a remarkable recovery overnight. I highly recommend this urgent care facility!

Always have decent service each visit here. Daytime exam is around $69. Seems like a secret vet since no one is here during the day but I was able to get in and out within an hour including waiting for the vet.

Everyone here has been extremely professional and kind. Very clean. They always offer to fax over records of the visit to your current vet. A bit warm in the summer with only fans. Advise them if your pet has a communicable disease (i.e. Kennel Cough) so they can get you out of the front waiting area and into an exam room ASAP.

Overall an excellent resource to keep in your address book should you need an emergency after hours Vet.

Found via Yelp reviews and they didn't steer me wrong.

Everyone here is amazing. Our dog needed emergency surgery and Dr. Christman was so good with her. She explained everything and called with updates. Their prices were very reasonable as well. The surgery was half the cost of our regular vet. I know price is not the most important thing, but when these things come up, the costs can add up and add to the stress.

My dog started acting funny with his back one Saturday and I tried seeing my vet, but was told they were booked for the day. After calling multiple places, I was referred here by my vet and was happy to discover this place.

They have reasonable prices for being an emergency vet and were super friendly.

The wait time on that Saturday was a little longer than most, but it turns out they were short staffed that day. Regardless, I was in and out in a decent amount of time and was happy with the care my dog received. I would definitely go back again should I ever need to. Thanks guys!

Took my dog here late one night for fast breathing. We were warmly greeted at the door, taken immediately to a room and he was examined within 5 minutes of arriving. The clinic was clean. The location is ideal. I can't say enough about the staff. They were friendly, took time to listen, made sure I understood the plan, and were very knowledgeable. Absolutely I will go back here when my fur babies need help and my primary vet isn't open. Love these folks!

This facility is fantastic! My cats and dogs have been patients here for many years. Every person who works here is compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. The fees are given to you up front and any questions you might have seem to be easily answered. I refer this place to everyone I know. I will continue to be a loyal customer for many years to come! Thank you to everyone at AUC for all of your compassion and professionalism.
