Overview

Virginia Veterinary Centers is pleased to introduce its new Urgent Care service, now available at VVC Midlothian!

VVC now offers new, convenient hours for companion animals needing to see a veterinarian after normal office hours but not requiring a visit to the emergency room. While we will have a team of skilled medical professionals who will work together to direct you and your pet to the appropriate service, noting certain symptoms will help our team determine the best care choice for your pet.

A patient seen by Urgent Care requiring emergency care will require immediate transfer to the Emergency Service at VVC Richmond.

FAQs

Our experienced Urgent Care clinician is highly qualified to provide out-patient care for companion animals that need to be treated right away but are not emergencies. Our convenient Urgent Care hours will provide owners peace of mind, rather than having to worry about their pet’s condition through the night when your veterinarian may not be able to see them.

  • Trauma (e.g. hit by car, falls, gunshot)

  • Hyper- or hypothermia (heatstroke or frostbite) 
  • High fever 
  • Serious burns 
  • Seizures or other neurologic signs

The good news is that the VVC’s Urgent Care Service and Emergency Service operate within the same conveniently located, state-of-the-art facility!
