Affordable, accessible and high-quality veterinary care is what drives the staff at Emancipet. The nonprofit national network of clinics, with four locations in the greater Austin area, is not a full-service practice that treats sick or injured animals. Instead, it offers walk-in services based on the most pressing needs within the local community, like spay and neuter surgeries, and preventative care like vaccinations, microchips, testing and medications.
