Our hospital offers an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for treating your pet during times of critical need. Our staff and veterinarians will determine if your pet requires the ICU services. ICU's are most often found at specialty hospitals with 24-hour care. Special equipment to help critically ill pets, such as blood pressure monitors, ECG machines, pulse oximeters, incubators, oxygen cages and ventilators are available in our ICU. Jugular catheters, chest tubes, arterial blood pressure lines, on site blood analysis, special nutrition services (placement of feeding tubes, total parenteral nutrition provided intravenously), and a variety of therapies to control pain are just a few of the things that are available for your seriously ill pet. Life resuscitation equipment is also available if needed.
