Urgent Care

The bedrock of any successful business is, of course, the people. Without the friendly, caring, and compassionate folks that keep us going strong each day, our medical expertise and years of experience wouldn’t have as much impact.

Indeed, our team strives each day to help animals in our ever-growing community. We are rewarded tenfold for our efforts with enthusiastic tail wags, face licks, purrs, and head bumps. To the pet owners of Erie, Pennsylvania, we thank you for allowing us the privilege of caring for your companion.

We also want to thank you for reading our pet care blogs. Each month, we discuss topics and address common questions facing many pet owners. From dispelling myths to raising awareness, our pet care blogs are meant to help and inform readers.

#3: The Critical Reality – and Importance – of Pet Parasite Prevention
Parasites. The word alone gives most people the creeps. No one wants to play host to a blood-sucking bug, but most animals in the wild aren’t able to defend themselves against parasites. Whether internal or external, we can all agree that parasite prevention is important for the pets we know and love. Without a proactive, diligent approach, serious health problems may be the outcome of this costly gamble. Continue reading….

#2: Canine Parvovirus: Deadly But Preventable
At Fairview Veterinary Hospital, few things make us more sad than a sick puppy…the only exception being a sick puppy who we could have protected from getting sick in the first place. Canine parvovirus is nothing to take lightly, but dog owners who take the time to learn a little bit about it can do a lot to protect their pet. Read more…

#1: Planning Ahead for Fall Pet Safety
Changing leaves, crisp breezes, and pumpkin-spiced everything are just a few of the reasons we love fall. Pets also enjoy the cooler temps and interesting smells in the air this time of year. But beware! Seasonal dangers can put them at risk. Fortunately, with our fall pet safety tips, you can keep their tails wagging and avoid an unwanted scare. Read on!
