★★★★★ My elderly dog who always made strange noises was making new strange noises, so with considerable anxiety and worry, I took her to Urgent Animal Care of Arlington. The online booking got us in right away. We arrived to encounter an amazing vet, who knew my dog and me from volunteering as a therapy dog team thru PAL Dogs. The news wasn't what we wanted to hear. Cancer had filled her heart, chest, and lungs with fluid, and turned her gums white. It was time. Love, Compassion, and Grace were in that room, where we could physically surround her on the carpeted floor of the peaceful room, say our farewells, and free that beautiful and gentle soul to Heaven. My deepest gratitude to Dr. Jen and the beautiful team here. Dr. Jen, I know that she is with Diggery, radiating Unconditional Love from the Heavens and keeping the squirrels in line.Jane Z.Jane Z. ★★★★★ Urgent Animal Care was terrific. I was able to make an appointment for my dog to be seen right away, without a long waiting room wait. The receptionist was friendly, and my dog got terrific care from the vet and her assistant. Highly recommend!Sarah G.Sarah G. ★★★★★ This is the best pet healthcare facility I have ever been to. The staff is so kind. It’s well run. Dr. O’Keefe is the gold standard. They could teach the human healthcare facilities a few things.Jen D.Jen D. ★★★★★ Such a wonderful experience! Our dog had a sore on his face that needed immediate attention. Got in line on my computer from home then headed over. Had no wait time when I arrived. Everyone was very friendly and attentive and treated my dog who felt comfortable and happy the whole time. Will definitely go back and highly recommended!Jill L.Jill L. ★★★★★ Very kind, attentive, prompt, and informative staff. Highly recommend this place if your primary vet can’t immediately see your pet.Brian D.Brian D. ★★★★★ I brought my cat in very last minute for a UTI, and the team at Urgent Animal Care of Arlington were excellent. Gave me instructions over the phone to book my appointment and were very thorough at the appointment itself. They were also very upfront about the cost of the tests, etc. so I wasn't shocked by the bill on my way out. The vet tech also demonstrated how best to give my cat both ear drops and oral medication, which was really appreciated. Really glad to know there's a top notch urgent care so close to home!Kristine G.Kristine G. ★★★★★ Highly recommend Urgent Animal Care of Arlington. My dog has struggled with lameness and pain in her hind legs for several months. I used the appointment system online and got in within an hour. The entire staff is friendly, thorough and caring. My dog was seen promptly and everyone spent a great deal of time listening and making great treatment decisions. She definitely left better than when I came in and there’s now some clear treatment options that are going to hopefully get her well soon.Daniel L.Daniel L. ★★★★★ I can't say enough about how positive my experience was here. My dog ingested a dryer sheet which can cause a blockage in the intestines if not treated quickly. The entire staff treated my dog with the utmost care and the facility was clean and welcoming. I am very thankful to have a high quality pet urgent care right in our neighborhood.Bradley N.Bradley N. ★★★★★ I (unfortunately) visited the Urgent Animal Care of Arlington a few times now, and each time my dog and I had a great experience. If you need to take your dog to an urgent care, I definitely recommend this one. They go above and beyond to make your dog feel safe and give them the best care they can. The place is always super clean too and the veterinarians take their time to explain the process and the options you have for your dog.Adriana M.Adriana M. ★★★★★ High-quality and speedy care. My cat received excellent treatment from them! Would recommend to any pet owner.Dan G.Dan G. ★★★★★ This place is such a great find! With so many vet offices in the area swamped, Urgent Animal Care of Arlington was able to see my pup the same day. I was able to sign up for a spot on the waiting list from home and when we showed up, we were seen very quickly. The office is clean and there is parking out front. Every staff member we interacted with was so kind and attentive. Dr. Marciano explained her thought process and was able to send us home with some medications saving me a trip to the pharmacy. The office sent me some paperwork via email after the visit reiterating instructions. I've referred back to these instructions often. They also called about 48 hours later to check on my pup. Sure, the costs are a bit high, but they were transparent on the website and for it being urgent care, I think the costs were more than fair. Many thanks to the wonderful staff at this clinic. If my pup needs urgent care again, this is the first place I'll check!Kathryn M.Kathryn M. ★★★★★ What a wonderful place! Had to take our pup for an allergic reaction and couldn’t have been happier with the experience. Highly recommend!Allie L.Allie L. ★★★★★ Wonderful care. Very gentle and efficient along with an atmosphere that is clean, relaxing and pleasant. Thank you to Dr Jennifer and crew or taking care of our fur baby when he got bit.Jennifer S.Jennifer S. ★★★★★ Our dog was exhibiting symptoms of a urinary tract infection. Our primary vet did not have any openings and we did not want to wait in a long queue at Friendship Animal Hospital. We were able to book a time slot online and have a zero wait time when we arrived. The staff is friendly, professional, attuned, and most importantly competent. The clinic was clean and modern. I would highly recommend coming here if your pet has a non-life threatening issue, that is time sensitive.Merrie P.Merrie P. ★★★★★ Had an urgent matter with our old lady, and our vet didn’t have any appointments available. Found this urgent care on google maps, and was able to make an appointment ASAP.Dr. Abato and her assistant were both kind and attentive, and treated our girl so well. I hope we don’t need any urgent care again, but if we do, I would 100% come back!Julia S.Julia S. ★★★★★ Excellent staff and facilities! Great use of technology to get prompt care. Thank you!FRFR ★★★★★ I stumbled upon this urgent care while looking for a place that would treat my dog's sprained ankle on July 4th weekend and I am so glad I did. The staff was so friendly and understanding. The tech, Josh, took his time with my baby and never acted rushed or impatient. Dr. Marciano was very friendly and explained everything very well. I felt very informed before making a decision on my pet's care. The option of scheduling your visit time online prevents going to a pet urgent care and sitting around until they can see you. If I ever need this service again, I will definitely be back.Jessica K.Jessica K. ★★★★☆ They are nice and friendly. It is a small pet emergency. They will ask you fill up your SSN before the appointment. It made me a little bit uncomfortable because I am a minority with an adopted Pitbull. The vet told me my dog had pneumonia but quickly dismissed it second day after consulting with a radiologist. However, my dog's symptoms lasted more than a month. I took her to a different emergency and the vet told me she indeed has pneumonia. But I still won't blame that vet, because she was right initially, just a bad radiologist. So they deserve a four star.Lutpulla M.Lutpulla M.js_loader
