Bond Vet, a New York-based veterinary clinic, is opening its first location in the DC area on Friday, July 15. The Capitol Hill debut will be followed by an Arlington opening on July 20, with Bethesda and Logan Circle locations coming later this year.
The startup, which launched in New York in 2019, specializes in emergency care, halfway between regular veterinary visits and emergency care. Bond Vet, which now has 11 locations, says it can help pets who suffer from minor bites, fleas and ticks, urination issues, behavioral changes, rashes, vomiting or diarrhea, and other common medical problems that don’t necessarily warrant a trip to the emergency room.
“Essentially, urgent pet care is anytime you’re like, ‘I think something’s wrong – a vet should take a look at this ASAP,'” explains the Bond Vet website. “Most vets can’t book same-day or walk-in appointments, but we are always available.”
The clinics also offer annual wellness exams, vaccinations, surgeries and dental care. The clinic’s veterinarians are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including by phone to provide advice, as well as through video telehealth visits with licensed veterinarians.
