Cost effective

Our patient care model and efficient footprint allows us to provide after hours and weekend urgent care services that are cost effective. On average, you will save 30% compared to alternative after-hours options.


Our team has extensive experience in emergency medicine. We offer state of the art diagnostics and provide the highest and most respectful standard of care.


Similar to human urgent care, we are a walk-in/no appointment necessary provider for your pet. However, we welcome you to make a reservation online.

Who we are

Like an urgent care center for humans, we provide prompt veterinary care for dogs and cats. PetMedic was founded by Dr. Nir Ben-Ari, an experienced emergency room clinician, to fill a void in after-hours and weekend care. During his years in the veterinary emergency room, Nir observed that many of his cases were for urgent care treatment, not life-threatening emergencies. These cases could be safely managed in an outpatient setting staffed with experienced doctors and technicians. An urgent care model could provide pet owners with a cost effective and time efficient option.

"If I could give PetMedic 1,000,000 stars, I would. Caring, kind and compassionate staff who are dedicated to helping your pet feel better. I cannot say enough good things about my recent experience with them. The process could not have been any easier, and they even submitted the claim to my insurance for me! There is a real need for this type of business. We have it for humans, so why not animals? An incredible asset to the area! 1,000,000 stars!!!"

We brought our cat here last week and were so impressed with the staff. They were so patient and caring with our cat and gave us the attention we needed to ensure that we came up with the best plan for her care. They emailed us detailed instructions and called to check up on her. We would highly recommend PetMedic

"Dr. Ben-Ari and his staff were friendly, helpful and caring. Should the need arise again, they will be my first choice"

Our cat was able to be examined, receive antibiotics, fluids, pain meds and an x-ray very quickly. The pricing was very fair and comparable to our regular daytime vet. All the information from the visit was uploaded to the easy to use pet portal.  Although we hope to not need emergency vet services again, we feel assured to know a great and reliable emergency vet is available in our area!

You never know what you'll pay with medical care, so I was happy to find that the pricing for cat's needs was very reasonable. I couldn't have asked for anything more! We will recommend PetMedic to anyone needing Pet Urgent Care, and will be back for any future urgent care needs. Thank you x 100!
