What to Expect in the Intensive Care Unit

When you bring your pets to our facility, they will be met with an elite team of professional veterinarians, registered veterinary technicians, and other well-trained staff members. One of our veterinarians will observe your pet to decide what care is needed. We also offer numerous patient stabilization and safety benefits, including:

  • 24-hour monitoring by skillfully trained veterinary professionals
  • Oxygen cages if your pet demands oxygen support
  • Fluid pumps to hydrate your pet and administer medications and treatment
  • A strategic location in the middle of the hospital that provides for continual and maximum examination by the whole staff

We care for every dog and cat with loving hearts, gentle touches, and warm spirits to give pet owners peace of mind. To make your furry companion feel comfortable and secure in the pet intensive care unit, we provide exceptional pet pain control through various therapeutic medications and procedures. As animal lovers ourselves, we’re determined to treat pets like family from the moment they enter their door until they fully recover.

How to Know if Your Pet Needs Intensive Care

Many pets who receive intensive care experienced emergency health situations that led them to the unit. However, sometimes it’s challenging to know if the symptoms your dog or cat display require immediate attention. Animals that face the following health issues should get urgent care:

  • Bleeding from orifices or bleeding that continues beyond five minutes
  • Choking, gagging, or non-stop coughing
  • Heatstroke
  • Ingestion of poison substances (i.e. chocolate, human medications, rat poison, etc.)
  • Pain when urinating or passing stools, or an inability to do either
  • Signs of anxious behavior or extreme pain
  • Unusual gait or seizures
  • Two or more episodes of diarrhea or vomiting in 24-hours or these symptoms combined with any of the other symptoms previously mentioned
  • Eye injuries
  • Fractured bones or severe limping
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Refusal of fluids for 24 hours or more

If your cat or dog displays any of these symptoms, reach out to us immediately. We’ll carefully walk you through each step to care for pets before they get to our clinic.
