About Us

Our Story

Animal Urgent Care of Hernando County was dreamed up by three women who have worked in all types of veterinary practices in our decades of combined experience. In that time, we found that places like Hernando County were missing an integral part of a pet's care team: urgent care. 

 We saw that general practice veterinary offices were getting burnt out from trying to fit in just one more urgent care case to their already overbooked schedules. We understood it was because sending these pets to the emergency hospital wasn't appropriate, yet the pet still needed care without having to wait days or weeks to be seen in their office.  We also saw the impact that large corporate owned veterinary companies were having on the industry and how it affected the level of care that pets received.


We know how much this frustrates pet owners, and understand how difficult it might be to stand by while your pet is in pain or uncomfortable in some way.  It was for these reasons, that we decided to create a clinic for the pet issues that arise and cannot be planned or scheduled during normal business hours.

Through hard work, sweat, and tears, we made Animal Urgent Care of Hernando a reality and are now open to provide your pets with the best medicine, and either transfer them back to your regular veterinarian for continued care, or to an emergency or specialty hospital for more extensive treatment.
