Boulder Veterinary Hospital can provide pet urgent care during regular business hours. Urgent care applies to medical situations that are non-life threatening, but still serious enough to require immediate attention.
Please call our hospital at (303) 442-6262 before arriving to allow our staff and doctors adequate time to prepare equipment and space to treat your pet!
