What can I expect when I arrive with my ill pet?
Just like a human emergency room, all phases of treatment are determined on a case-by-case basis. We understand how important it is to have a rapid response to critical cases such as hit-by-car traumas. When you arrive, and emergency technician will meet you in the lobby prepared to collect your pet for emergency triage, treatment, and stabilization. This may include but is not limited to: checking the patient's pulse, respiration, temperature, assessing the level of consciousness, obtaining blood samples and blood pressure, placing a intravenous catheter, providing oxygen support, administering intravenous fluids, pain management and CPR. The receptionist will obtain information from you regarding your pet's medical history, as well as the current injury/illness. This information will allow us to create a medical record where treatments and medications can be logged.
Is there a veterinarian available overnight?
Yes, our veterinarians and technicians work 24 hours a day to provide the best patient care possible. The doctors' workstation is centrally located in the treatment room, allowing a panoramic view of all the hospitalized patients. This allows careful observation of all hospitalized patients as well as timely changes to treatment protocols.
How will my family veterinarian be kept informed?
