About Us

Urban Pet Hospital & Resort is the result of Dr. Anil Regmi's vision of providing a first class medical service and a luxury resort for pets at a very "Affordable Price" in central Iowa. Located in Urbandale, Iowa, Urban Pet Hospital was started in March 2000 and became a Urban Pet Hospital & Resort in November 2007.

As envisioned by Dr. Regmi, the current remodeled facility with more than 10,000 square feet of indoor space boasts a full service veterinary hospital with the state-of-the-art medical and therapeutic equipments. Urban Pet Hospital & Resort is proud to be the only facility in central Iowa that offers an indoor counter-current pool from Endless Pool and an under water treadmill.
