The first PetMedic emergency care veterinary clinic opened this week, located at 1 Oak Street in the FedEx Plaza. A grand opening ceremony will take place in the fall.

Inspired by human emergency care, PetMedic provides coordinated, convenient, and compassionate veterinary care for non-life-threatening conditions after hours and on weekends.
