About Us

Nir picturePetMedic was founded by Dr. Nir Ben-Ari, an experienced emergency room clinician, to fill a void in after-hours, weekend, and holiday care. During his years in the veterinary emergency room, Nir observed that the majority of his cases were for urgent care treatment, not life-threatening emergencies. The majority of his 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 more cost-effective and time-efficient option than what is currently available in the veterinary community. From this idea, PetMedic was born.

For our community veterinarian partners

PetMedic’s goal is to complement the services offered by community veterinarians by ensuring prompt and quality care for their patients when their offices are closed. We believe that efficiently facilitating care at a convenient time for owners will prevent pets from developing more serious issues that may require advanced medical care. We aim to provide a comfortable and seamless transition for community practices. Your clients can reach us by phone, reserve a time online, or just walk into the clinic.
