Lakewood Pet Vet offers same-day walk-in's and urgent care. We're here for any pet emergencies and the in-between moments when it's not quite an emergency, and you can't afford to wait for a regular veterinarian appointment.
Our urgent care team strives to help every patient to the best of our abilities by providing the utmost quality of care, compassion, and medicine. Urgent care is offered 7 days a week. In order to better serve you and your pet in an efficient manner, we take our cases based on the severity of the pet's health and the availability of the doctor's schedule.
