Hospitalization

Our goal is to treat every pet, so that they can go home with you as soon as possible. However, in some cases, animals need to be hospitalized to get the care they need. Our state-of-the-art facility can provide complete hospitalization services, if your pet needs to be admitted. You can rest easy knowing that you have a team of capable emergency veterinarians treating and monitoring your best friend.

Since we are not open during normal business hours, we can arrange for your pet to be transported to its regular veterinarian, if it needs to be hospitalized beyond our hours of operation.

How do our hospitalization services work?

Just like a human hospital, all of our hospitalized patients are carefully monitored. Similar to human doctors, we use a variety of machines to monitor your pet's progress like blood pressure monitors, electrocardiograms, and pulse oximeters. And, of course, we don't simply rely on machines. All of our hospitalized patients are constantly supervised by our veterinarian and technicians.

All of our hospitalized animals are kept in either comfortable cages or spacious runs during their stay. We are dedicated to providing your furry friend with constant comfort. Between our cozy accommodations and our access to pain medications for pets, we can keep your pet as comfortable as possible.

In order to keep all of our patients safe, animals that have contagious diseases like Parvo, certain viruses, and upper respiratory infections are hospitalized in a separate isolation ward. Our isolated patients receive all of the same careful care and monitoring as our other patients, just in an area where they cannot infect anyone else.

Can you accommodate serious cases?

Absolutely.

We have a full-service Intensive Care Unit that has IV's, catheters, fluid therapy, and round-the-clock monitoring.

Will I be able to visit my pet while he is hospitalized?

Yes you may as circumstances permit.

While the final decision will be up to your doctor, many families can take advantage of visiting hours. However, if your pet's condition is too severe, we may ask that you not visit, so that it does not interfere with his treatment.

Do you take referrals?

Yes.

In many cases, regular veterinarians place patients in our care overnight, over weekends, or during holidays, when their office is closed. Many traditional veterinarians simply do not have the resources to provide constant care, so they refer their more serious patients to us. Also, we can take pets whose veterinarians do not have the equipment needed to provide adequate treatment.
