Small Animal Critical Care

Similar to an intensive care unit for humans, we provide 24-hour care for critically ill, injured, and post-operative animals. Care ranges from simple observation to intensive monitoring and management.

If your pet’s veterinary specialist within the hospital determines intensive care or monitoring is necessary, they may recommend hospitalization in the critical care unit. While receiving around-the-clock care from the critical care team, any treatment decisions will be discussed with you by your pet’s veterinary specialist within the hospital.
