Emergency & Urgent Care

We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 5 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several assistants/ technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.

We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments between 9 am and 3 pm Monday through Friday. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an approximate estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen, but wait times may be off due the unpredictable nature of emergency and urgent care cases.  If an appointment slot is available you will be scheduled then.  

We do not close down mid -day, our staff is ready to see your pet's true emergency at any time during our business hours.  At least one veterinarian is on staff at all times the clinic is open. 

Due to the unpredictable nature of urgent care and walk-in visits your wait to be seen may be minutes or could be several hours.  Depends on our appointment schedule and how many Urgent Care or Walk-Ins we have.  If the wait gets to long we may have to discontinue accepting new walk-ins on any given day.

Open Hospital

Premier VetCare operates an open hospital. This means that our team welcomes owners to be with their animals during any medical procedure.  We make every attempt to perform all testing and procedures with you in the exam room.  If for any reason we need to escort you pet to the treatment area for a procedure you are welcome to follow.  For you safety we often will ask that you allow our trained staff to restrain you pet for treatments we need to perform.

We are proud of our 6600 sq ft state of the art facility so tours of our hospital are encouraged.  Be sure to ask our staff for guided tour and a look around anytime.  


Premier VetCare accepts payment via Cash, MasterCard, Visa, Debit, and Care Credit. So that we can continue to provide you high quality service utilizing the best medical technologies, we request that payment be made at the time services are rendered.  Our office does not do any type of delayed billing.  Deposits are required for large surgeries and hospitalizations.

We provide written treatment plans for all surgeries and hospitalizations. If you have not received an estimate, you are welcome to request one at any time for your expected charges.

Premier VetCare does not offer any type of discount program except through savings provided by our Premier Pet Wellness Program.  We work hard to keep our fees low and as reasonable as possible for all of our clients.  By offering discounts to any one group means we have to charge other clients more. We believe this is an unfair business practice we do not participate in.
