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.

When our furry baby was having a hard time breathing we rushed him to Dr. Salcetti and she immediately discovered the problem. She and her team worked tirelessly to help him. I am happy to report that we are a year away from his operation and he is doing wonderfully. Thank you Dr. Salcetti and your team!
My wife and I were visiting family in The Houston area with our corgi puppy. During the visit he ingested some mulch and got sick. We took him to see Dr. Salcetti. She examined our dog and was able to treat him and help him feel better. As new dog owners we were clearly nervous during the whole thing. Dr. Salcetti understood this and helped us and our dog get through it smoothly and easily, answering all our questions and making sure to follow up after to see how we were all doing. Thanks again for all your help!
Dr. Salcetti is an excellent veterinarian and I highly recommend her. She is knowledgeable, professional and compassionate. I feel we are in good hands when she cares for our pets. She explains treatment options and her recommendations clearly in words we understand, and makes us feel comfortable and satisfied with the decisions we make. We are grateful to have her caring for our pets.
I’ve been taking my cat to see Dr. Salcetti for 5 years now and I don’t plan on seeing anyone else. My cat is easily scared and becomes aggressive in other vet offices. Dr. Salcetti knew how to approach and care for my pet perfectly. I no longer stress before going to the vet!

Dr. Nicholson took the time and explained my cat’s procedure to me in layman’s terms. She even called me a few days after the operation to check on her condition.
Dr. Nicholson diagnosed and successfully cured my fur babies kidney infection!
Highly recommend Dr. Nicholson! She solved our dog's stomach issues after seeing 3 other vets (before we moved to this area)! 2 days after seeing Dr. Nicholson, our dog was totally better!
We took our pup in to see a vet twice before we got a third appointment, this time with Dr. Nicholson. She was able to diagnose and successfully treat a thyroid issue. I am so thankful for her. Dr. Nicholson is very caring, treats our dog as if he were her own, and always takes the time to explain all options and translate medical jargon into an easy to understand plan.
We offer a range of emergency services to cater to every situation. Part of being your pet's advocate is finding the right, customized solution for their needs - every time.
