Pet owners in the Meyerland area will soon have an emergency care pet clinic opening in April, according to a news release.

UrgentVet is expanding its footprint in the Houston area, and according to the Meyerland Commons leasing property group Fidelis, UrgentVet will be located at 4946 Beechnut St., Suite B, Houston. The clinic will be located between the restaurant First Watch and the Great Clips at Meyerland Commons, according to the clinic’s website.

“Meyerland represents an exciting opportunity for UrgentVet to enter into a community that is incredibly pet-friendly and pet-focused,” UrgentVet Founder Dr. Jim Dobies said in a news release. "This clinic also gives us a chance to be closer to a huge segment of pet parents that live inside the Houston Inner Loop and we couldn't be more thrilled to broaden that reach."

The clinic is 2,466 square feet with two exam rooms exclusively for small dogs, two for large dogs and one for cats. According to clinic representatives, the design for the clinic included features that are meant to create a "fear free experience" such as non-slip flooring, dimmable lighting, soothing colors and soft music.

UrgentVet serves as a clinic to fill in the gap for pet owners between primary and emergency pet care visits, according to the news release. The clinic treats a variety of pet medical issues, including vomiting, diarrhea, limping, itching, coughing, minor wounds and back pain.

Pet owners can expect the urgent care pet clinic to be open 365 days a year, according to the news release, and the hours will vary on holidays. According to the clinic's website, the hours will be Monday-Friday from 3-11 p.m., Saturday-Sunday from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and on holidays from noon-8 p.m.
