Our Services

General Care

Health is our top priority. We provide the highest quality care using a wide range of wellness and preventative care options tailored to their specific needs.

Sick Visit

We understand the concern you feel when your pet is sick. Sick visits are available same-day so that diagnosis and treatment can begin as quickly as possible.

ER & Urgent Care

Pet emergencies can be scary, we provide extended hours to help provide emergency and urgent care for your pet as quickly as possible.


We will proudly see a variety of small animals including guinea pigs, rabbits and rodents for a wellness or sick exam, surgery and dentistry.


Our commitment to your pet’s health is reflected by our robust in-house veterinary pharmacy.

Blood Work

Looking good on the outside doesn’t always mean our pets are healthy. Blood work is an important diagnostic our doctors recommend for both sick and healthy pets.


X-rays are one of the most important diagnostic tools that can help us evaluate bones and internal organs. Results are available immediately.


We apply state-of-the-art techniques in combination with the most cutting-edge equipment available to provide for all your pet’s surgical needs.


Dental health is vital to maintain quality of life. We provide routine dental cleaning, as well as more extensive care for extractions and tumor removals.

I took my dog there when she had been sick and our regular vet wasn’t unable to see us. For a walk in, they were very... fast! My appointment was over within an hour. It was difficult not being able to go inside with your pet, but I felt confident here that my dog was in good hands! They also followed up the next day with a call which was very much appreciated!read more

This evening I noticed my 5 1-2 month old puppy acting very strange. She was frequently urinating anywhere but her... potty place and that just wasn’t like her. I called Art City Vets and Urgent Care and they were able to see us immediately. Turns out she has a UTI. The vet was AMAZING! He informed my husband and I of every step of the procedure. And held our little fur baby who we could hear crying while he was going over the results. We are extremely grateful! Thank you Art City Vets and Urgent Care for your open line of communication and phenomenal care! Would highly recommend to anyone in need of care for your pet!read more

Art City Vets is not our regular vet but I’ve been to their Urgent Care twice for a kitten I rescued last month.... I’ve had pets all my life and I rescue cats often. Emergency vet hospitals are so expensive and the wait is very long while primary vets are always booked up and can’t always take emergency appointments. The Urgent Care services at Art City Vets are phenomenal. The wait isn’t long at all, the prices are reasonable and everyone is really nice and professional. When you just need your pet to be seen immediately, this is the place to go. I’ve worked with so many vets over the years and getting an appointment at a reasonable date and time has been one of the struggles I’ve faced but the Urgent Care here has given me so much peace of mind. They answer the phones quickly, answer all of your questions and are so thorough. I am highly considering making Art City our primary vet for all three of my cats.read more

Great practice in a convenient area. Professional and well-kept. So nice they do walk-in urgent care in this area. I... feel like Dr. Howell is not only knowledgeable and reasonable but she genuinely cares about my creatures. Good social media updates as well.read more

New to the city and needing a vet, I booked an appointment after reading all of these great reviews and I was not... disappointed. Jessica at the front desk was so friendly and helpful and made setting up my appt a breeze! I wasn’t able to go in the building per covid regulation, however Dr Shafer made me feel completely at ease and thoroughly explained everything that was going on. My cat isn’t the nicest lady to strangers but she seemed very at ease and not stressed at all upon coming home. I couldn’t recommend this office more! They really deserve every single 5 star rating, thank you guys!read more

Great place. Will keep coming back. Had to bring in one of my cats to be put down and the team was great at making this... difficult moment as easy as possible for both me and my cat. A few days after our visit, we got a very sweet letter in the mail that all of the staff had signed and left us messages for our loss. Human and caring in every way. We will continue to bring our other cat here for the great service we received.read more

My English Bulldog would be a red, itchy mess without Dr. Aller! He is extremely knowledgeable and gave us several... treatment options, explaining each carefully. The brand new facilities are gorgeous and top of the line. I am so glad I found exceptional care at a central location close to my home. I also feel at ease knowing Art City Vets is open after hours and 7 days a week. Best vet in the city!read more
