A Better Life
Our state of the art Intensive Care Unit provides ongoing care of critically ill or injured pets as well as those recovering from surgery. Our primary goal is to provide the immediate initial evaluation, stabilization, and treatment for ill or injured pets. As part of the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, our service is the conduit to the entire team of specialties to ensure the best possible care for your pet. When you arrive at the VMTH, you will be received by a fourth year veterinary student who will immediately transport your pet to the Emergency Service to be initially evaluated and stabilized by the emergency veterinarian on duty. Our team will create a treatment plan which may require your pet staying in the hospital or may be done on an outpatient basis depending on the condition. Our team may also recommend transferring your pet to your primary veterinarian for follow up care. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Appointments are not necessary, but please call ahead if possible.
