Internal Medicine: Intensive Care Unit

Our intensive care unit is fully equipped to provide state-of-the art care for critically ill patients. The unit is staffed around the clock by 12 veterinary critical care technicians and supported by an animal blood bank service. We promote a family-friendly environment encouraging owner visitations facilitated by a small visitation room within the ICU. The ICU is a support service that provides patient care and monitoring for approximately 1300 small animal patients annually from all the VH specialty services such as Internal Medicine, Surgery, Neurology, Cardiology, Oncology, and others.

Both the ICU and ER are fully equipped to provide state of the art continuous emergency and critical care, including but not limited to mechanical ventilation, in-department ultrasound, CBC, chemistry panel and coagulation assessments including TEG, osmometry, invasive blood pressure evaluation and analysis.
