We have the capability to offer the following to patients:

  • Evaluation of your pet by a well-trained veterinarian
  • X-rays
  • Blood work
  • Antibiotics
  • Other needed drugs
  • Oxygen Therapy
  • ECG Monitoring
  • Nebulization
  • Intravenous Fluid Therapy
  • Pain Management
  • Direct and Indirect Blood Pressure Monitoring
  • Enteral and Parenteral Nutrition
  • Blood and Plasma Transfusions

These tests help the clinicians determine the patient’s needs and allow them to know if more intense therapies should be performed. The Small Animal ICU has recently added a critical care ventilator and advanced monitoring to help patients who are unable to breathe on their own.

The ICU employs 12 registered veterinary technicians that care for the hospitalized patients offering individual nursing care and intense monitoring. The technicians administer medications, various therapies and pay special attention to patient comfort.
