Animal Urgent Care was founded in July of 1996 to provide the best emergency veterinary medical and surgical services
for companion animals in inland north San Diego County. The clinic is owned, managed, and operated by Dr. Karen Seibold, DVM, a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care, and her husband Christopher Read. The practice was relocated into a state of the art facility in April 2003.
