Urban PetRx is a locally and independently owned veterinary care clinic, proud to bring veterinary services back to the Bridgeport neighborhood of Chicago.
We strive to provide modern veterinary medicine with traditional sensibilities. This means we have developed a contemporary clinic to offer the best care available for your pet, yet we don’t subscribe to the practice of upselling our services. Our goal is to be honest, fair, and to never guilt you into doing anything… We offer a friendly, compassionate and frank approach towards caring for your family pet, all in a judgement-free environment.

The entire team at Urban PetRx have extensive experience in the field of veterinary medicine and feel passionately about providing you with exceptional communication and honest information regarding your pet’s health.
