Emergency & Urgent Care

Our team is prepared to handle a wide range of emergency situations.

As a devoted and responsible pet owner, you take all reasonable precautions to protect your furry friend from being sick or injured.

However, despite your best efforts, significant issues can arise anytime. Pets, like kids, can have unexpected symptoms, sustain injuries, or consume substances that make them ill. Knowing what to do in these urgent situations is crucial.

During our regular business hours, our team provides pet emergency and urgent care for sick or injured cats and dogs in The Colony. We will direct you to a 24-hour facility that can provide your pet with the necessary treatment if they need urgent or emergent care outside our regular hours.


We always have a veterinarian and support personnel on duty during regular office hours. A pet emergency team often includes a veterinarian and numerous technicians who work together to ensure the best outcome for the patient. Our team is prepared to handle a wide range of pet emergencies and urgent care situations and will do everything possible to care for your pet.

Your pet could require emergency care if it is poisoned, struck by a car, eats chocolate (or another toxin), or is otherwise sick. It is always preferable to err on the side of caution and contact us if you think your pet needs emergency treatment for any reason. If you believe your pet requires immediate attention, we’ll help you decide whether to bring them in immediately.
