Same-Day Veterinary Care

We understand that sometimes your pet needs to be seen sooner rather than later. To solve this problem, VCA Loomis Basin offers Same-Day Care appointments to accommodate client requests for “emergency” or “urgent” care during normal business hours or last-minute appointment requests. Same-Day Care is a much-needed service that helps keep the regularly scheduled appointments on track; however, clients may have to wait while other pets are being triaged.
