Put Your Pet in Good Hands

The Standard of Excellence for Urgent Veterinary Care

We are proud to provide urgent veterinary care services for the cats and dogs of The Woodlands and surrounding communities. As your vet, our commitment is to find your pet quick and effective solutions for the problem at hand, while making sure you’re kept in the loop every step of the way. Pet wellness, client communication, and fair and transparent pricing are core to our mission of caring for our patients and delighting our clients. Don’t wait – walk-in or call us today.

True Animal Vet offers urgent care services for pet owners seeking urgent medical attention (M-F until 9pm, Sat 8am-12pm) . We handle anything from minor illnesses and injuries to Emergency Situations. It is sometimes impossible for a pet parent to know the difference between an urgent and emergency situation, and we don’t expect you to. That’s why we encourage you to bring your animal in for an urgent check-up from one of our doctors if you suspect something is wrong – we’ll provide the appropriate guidance and care.

“This may just be my dream team. Both Dr. Salcetti and Dr. Nicholson helped us care for and treat our very senior dogs in their later years from different clinics. Having them both together in the same clinic is going to be such a treat. These women are bright, dedicated, compassionate and practical. They give the kind of care that makes you feel like they are truly the family vet. I used to drive half an hour to see either of them because they are that good. Having them closer to home will be wonderful, especially since we just adopted a new dog. I can't wait to introduce her to them, and I know she will be in good hands when needed.”
