UrgentVet—a dedicated urgent care clinic for pets—celebrated the grand opening of its new Kingwood clinic at 30129 Rock Creek Drive, Ste. 600, on April 6.

According to a March 29 news release, UrgentVet is a unique concept that bridges the gap between primary practices and 24-hour emergency vets by offering pets relief for mild illnesses and minor injuries at an affordable rate. UrgentVet does not treat life-threatening emergencies.

“We couldn't be more excited to expand in the Houston area, a place that has always been so welcoming to UrgentVet since we first entered the market,” said Dr. Jim Dobies, a doctor of veterinary medicine and the founder of UrgentVet, in a statement. “We believe Kingwood is the perfect location for us to establish a clinic so that we can serve some of the Houston suburbs that may have been a bit too far from our existing clinics like Cypress and Katy.”

According to the release, the Kingwood clinic spans 2,537 square feet and features three exam rooms for small dogs, two for large dogs and one for cats. The clinic also includes an in-house laboratory and state-of-the-art equipment, including digital radiography and ultrasound technology.

The Kingwood clinic is open weekdays from 3-11 p.m., on weekends from 10 a.m.-8 p.m. and on holidays from noon-8 p.m. 281-768-7878. www.urgentvet.com/location/kingwood
