Veterinary Urgent Care

If your veterinarian is unavailable and your pet is injured or sick, ACCESS South Bay is happy to provide two options – Animal Urgent Care or Emergency Care.

While our 24×7 Emergency Department will treat your pet for life-threatening conditions, our Urgent Care department can help pets who have non-life-threatening situations but still need to be seen by a doctor as soon as possible.

If you’re unsure whether your pet’s situation requires Emergency Care or Urgent Care, please see the list below for common comparisons and medical concerns.

Our Urgent Care Department accepts walk-ins and appointments.

Based on your pet’s symptoms/concerns, our team will guide you through our Urgent Care process. Urgent Care exam and consultation fees are $110 (plus additional diagnostics & treatment as guided by our Doctors). If your pet requires ER services based on the severity of the situation, the doctor will partner with you to transfer your pet to ER for more detailed diagnosis and treatment (additional fees will be incurred).
