Urgent Care

Animalia is now offering Saturday Urgent Care Services!

Animalia is excited to offer Urgent Care services for patients in need on a call-ahead appointment basis. Our goal is to provide extended hours and exceptional care for sick or injured patients.

Urgent Care Hours: 

Saturday: 8:00am – 6:00pm 

Animalia Urgent Care provides veterinary services for a variety of conditions, illnesses, and injuries found in our pet patients. We have emergency-trained professionals and dedicated veterinarians on staff, with onsite diagnostic equipment to perform blood work, x-rays, and an in-house pharmacy allowing timely results and treatment of our patients. Cases requiring 24-hour critical care or more advanced diagnostics and treatments will be stabilized and referred to Blue Pearl Veterinary Partners or Nashville Veterinary Specialists.

Please note pricing will be increased to reflect Urgent Care provision. To ensure the focus and attention remains on sick patients, we will not be scheduling surgical procedures, technician appointments, or day-of prescription refills outside of Urgent Care needs.

We will provide humane euthanasia in a caring and compassionate manner when needed. However, we will not perform convenience euthanasia on patients who do not have a medical or behavioral history during Urgent Care hours. 

Outpatient cases will be instructed to schedule any rechecks or follow-up care with their primary care veterinarian. All patient exam notes and diagnostic test results will be sent back to the primary care veterinarian in a timely fashion. Our urgent care services aim to complement the healthcare services available in our community and provide support to our local emergency hospitals. Thank you for placing your continued trust in our team as we look forward to serving you and your pet!

What to Expect on Arrival 

You will be greeted by our patient care coordinator in the lobby. If your pet is unstable or critical, a medical professional will be called to triage and assess your pet. We will obtain both client and patient information, as well as a signed treatment authorization form to proceed. 

In the event your pet is critical or needs resuscitation, our team will take your pet directly to the treatment area to start life-saving measures. This may include, starting oxygen, placing an IV catheter, starting fluid therapy, or warming support. You will be escorted to an exam room to gather more information by our staff, while our veterinarian examines your pet in the treatment area. Once the exam is complete, our medical team will return to the exam room to discuss next steps.

Urgent Care is scheduled on a call-ahead appointment basis, so we ask that you contact our client service team at 615-595-7100 to schedule an appointment before arriving. Our staff will work diligently to see your pet in a timely manner as scheduled and ask for your patience as we prioritize critical patient care needs.
