Urgent Care for pets is available for current patients/established clients of Vista Animal Hospital.

Important Notice: Vista Animal Hospital offers urgent care for pets —

  • Appointment availability is limited for urgent care visits.
  • Urgent care is only provided during normal business hours. See below for hours.
  • We do not provide walk-in urgent care at Vista Animal Hospital.
  • Please call for appointment availability: 720-466-1414

Why Are Appointment Times Limited for Urgent Care?

Vista Animal Hospital — like most animal hospitals and clinics in the Boulder-Denver area — is seeing higher than normal visits at this time. We also have established additional cleaning protocols for our clients’ and staff’s safety, which requires more time between appointments.


720-466-1414 (we do not currently take walk-in appointments)

We will make every effort see your pet for a same-day, urgent care appointment.


What if my pet has never been seen at Vista Animal Hospital, can I get an urgent care appointment?

We would love to care for your pet and have you as a client. We are accepting new patients. However, urgent care appointments are limited. Our staff will be happy to talk with you about your pet’s urgent care needs. If we are able to find a same-day urgent care appointment time, we will gladly see you. We ask you to call us for availability.

Please call us at 720-466-1414
