Urgent Care Veterinary Clinic Redefines Patient Care Model by Bridging Gap Between Family Veterinarians and Emergency Hospitals

Vienna, VA – August 30, 2023

Expanded veterinary service capabilities are now available in Vienna, Virginia. The first PetMedic Urgent Care Vet Clinic opened its doors today, located at 1497 Cornerside Blvd. in the Dunkin’ plaza, just a short drive from the Tysons Corner shopping center. The practice will be open Wednesday-Saturday. A grand opening celebration is scheduled for September 12, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.

 

Modeled after human urgent care, PetMedic offers coordinated, convenient, and compassionate veterinary care for non-life-threatening conditions after regular business hours and on weekends. PetMedic complements pet owners’ trusted family veterinarians and alleviates the case overload at emergency hospitals. The first PetMedic clinic opened in Watertown, Massachusetts, in 2020 followed by six more locations throughout the Northeast.

 

The clinic is staffed by Dr. Kenn Finn who has years of experience in emergency medicine and general practice. He is joined by his practice manager, Shawn Williams, and a team of highly skilled veterinary technicians and support staff. The hospital is complete with a modern surgical suite, laboratory, digital X-Ray, ultrasound, and cutting-edge software that allows for an efficient workflow for team members.

 

Dr. Ben-Ari, PetMedic’s chief medical officer, commented, “Without an urgent care option, pet owners must make the difficult decision to allow their pets to wait overnight or even days to be treated for an issue that may be uncomfortable or get worse, or go to an emergency hospital, adding to patient overload where the priority must be given to critical conditions. We are excited to give pet parents around Tysons Corner another option.”

 

PetMedic does not perform routine services provided by family veterinary practices, such as wellness visits, or administer vaccinations. Pet owners can make same-day appointments conveniently online. An outstanding healthcare team and client-centric approach is a top priority for all PetMedic clinics.
