GAINESVILLE, FL (December 14, 2020) – UrgentVet, a rapidly expanding pet urgent care provider in the southeastern U.S., has opened a new clinic in Gainesville, Florida. Franklin Street’s Abby Walsh and Carrie Smith, of the firm’s Jacksonville retail services team, represented UrgentVet in the 2,000-square-foot lease at 2689 Clark Butler Blvd.

“UrgentVet is very enthusiastic about the opportunities in the state of Florida, and Gainesville in particular. Gainesville is a wonderful community of pet lovers with many dog-friendly businesses,” said UrgentVet Founder Jim Dobies. “We are confident that UrgentVet’s value proposition of affordable, convenient after-hours veterinary care will resonate with pet parents in Alachua County.”

UrgentVet is modern, technology-driven, and client-focused veterinary clinic that serves as a hybrid between a regular vet and an emergency vet. Clinics are open 365 a year with extended hours, and most visits are completed in an hour or less. No appointments are necessary, but clients can secure their spot in line via UrgentVet’s website for added convenience.

“This location off Butler Boulevard provides UrgentVet with a highly visible end-cap location and access to an area with a strong need for veterinary care,” said Franklin Street’s Walsh. “We’re excited to see UrgentVet continue to grow in Florida and bring its exceptional, convenient care to new markets.”

Franklin Street represents UrgentVet throughout Florida, where the company is actively expanding. 

“Franklin Street has enhanced the UrgentVet business model by helping us refine our site selection process. The combination of Franklin Street’s retail expertise and UrgentVet’s analytics has resulted in busier grand openings, better revenue and more pets and pet parents cared for. We can also identify opportunities and open clinics in new markets faster than ever before,” Dobies added.

Gerardo Aguinis with The Zall Company arranged the Gainesville lease on behalf of the landlord, Butler Enterprises.
