We believe that the right approach to pet care, alongside the right medical tools and expertise, can make all the difference in achieving the best outcomes for our patients. That’s why our team works tirelessly to deliver compassionate, precise emergency vet care and specialty services while communicating frequently and honestly with you and your veterinarian.

We are driven to provide high-quality, personalized treatment for your pet’s health when it matters most. We perform emergency trauma care for dogs and cats around the clock, as well as scheduled advanced veterinary surgical procedures. For horses, we deliver excellent equine dental care and standing surgical procedures, and plan on expanding our range of services in the years to come. UVS leverages the latest technology to deliver profound benefits to the health and overall well-being of your pet as well as to allow us to communicate more effectively.

We believe that by following these core values with our approach to care, we can have a remarkable impact on the well-being of your pet:
