NIVES is excited to announce our newest service line, NIVES Urgent Care!

NIVES is excited to announce our newest service line, NIVES Urgent Care! We’ve added supplemental urgent care to streamline the emergency care needs of our community. Urgent Care treatment will be provided in our newly constructed building, located just in front of our main NIVES hospital. Our new urgent care facility is intended to treat those pets with minor injuries or concerns in a more timely manner. Any urgent care patients in need of more advanced treatment can be quickly transferred to the main NIVES building for additional critical care or 24-hour hospitalization.

We have a dedicated team available to help clients best determine which level of veterinary care to seek for their pets. To see a list of typical conditions seen by urgent care, please go to our FAQ page.
