After-Hours Urgent Care for Dogs and Cats

Visit PriorityVet for After Hours Urgent Pet Care

PriorityVet is an after-hours veterinary facility that provides urgent care services for your pet during a time when your regular veterinarian may be unavailable. Modeled after human urgent care, PriorityVet is unlike typical veterinary emergency hospitals with potentially longer wait times and reportedly higher fees. PriorityVet serves Ocean and Monmouth Counties with two centrally-located, after-hours hospitals that has proven to be a convenient and time-saving alternative for urgent after-hours pet care.

What People Are Saying

Real testimonials from Real PriorityVet Clients

Priority Vet_Melissa_Pape-01

“My cat had been coughing for 3 days and I just noticed his labored breathing. Knowing cats present symptoms late in an illness I was so distraught. I called 2 vets before this one and one told me it would be a 3 hour wait! I called this vet and right from the beginning they were so nice! Thankfully they are only 10 minutes away and they were waiting for me at the door to take my cat and I into a room. They were so wonderful with my cat and although he is very calm I was a little nervous on how he would react to a new vet and they made him feel so comfortable! They loved him, cared for him as I would, and were so wonderful in general. Any emergency vet will be a bit more expensive than a vet with normal hours but this vet was actually pretty reasonable and really worked with me and my cat. Turns out he has asthma! After a few injections and steroids to go home with he’s doing great right now. Thank you all so much for the wonderful experience and care right from the start! I would recommend this emergency vet to everyone!”
