What We Do

Here at Oklahoma Vet, your pet is our priority. Sometimes they need immediate attention, which is why we stay open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Whether your companion needs emergency surgery, is having a severe allergic reaction, or something else altogether, we’re here to provide.

We also pride ourselves on offering specialized forms of care, because sometimes pets need more advanced treatments than what the typical vet clinic can offer. These services include internal medicine, ophthalmology, dermatology, and various types of surgery. Outside of an emergency, we typically ask for a referral from a traditional vet clinic before scheduling an appointment, just to rule out simpler forms of treatment.

We believe that all animals deserve a happy, healthy life. So while we do not offer general wellness visits or grooming, we do focus on finding the best medical solutions to get your pet’s health back on track. If your companion is experiencing a health issue that can’t be solved at your local vet clinic, come see us and we’ll work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your pet.
