Emergency and Critical Care
When you’re experiencing an after-hours emergency with your pet, we’ll be there. Bring them straight to us so that we can assess the situation and provide a quick diagnosis and treatment. Two of the most common injuries we see are from bites or cuts, and time is of the essence in controlling infections associated with wounds.
We provide medication and wound care immediately to help your pet feel their best during a stressful situation.
Radiology gives us a view of the internal organs in your pet’s body that we otherwise could not see. It’s a valuable diagnostic tool that helps veterinarians detect and prevent illness, especially when every second counts.
The use of radiology is safe, and our entire staff is highly trained. It is our goal to provide your pet with the highest level of medical care possible, and this is just one of the many ways we achieve that.
Saying goodbye to a beloved pet is never easy. Our team will provide you with a safe, calm space to say goodbye. Our veterinary team will be there to answer all of your questions and to make sure you and your pet are comfortable. No appointment is necessary.
If your pet is in need of an emergency blood transfusion, we’re here to help. The infusion of blood into their system can help with anaemia, which is often a result of trauma. Bllod also contains platelets, which are vital for blood clotting and may be given to animals with low or defective platelets to stop them bleeding.
A general anesthetic results in a loss of consciousness in the animal and a loss of sensation throughout the entire body. Most general anesthetic procedures involve several steps beginning with the administration of a sedative. An intravenous injection of an anesthetic renders the animal unconscious while a breathing tube is placed into the animal’s trachea. A gas anesthetic is delivered in combination with oxygen to the animal via the breathing tube to maintain the state of unconsciousness.
During anesthesia, our patient’s vital signs are monitored closely by a veterinary nurse. Your pet’s heart rate, respiratory rate, capillary refill time, blood pressure, EKG, and temperature are charted and recorded every five minutes. A change in blood pressure is an early indication of a likely problem. Monitoring our patient’s vital signs so closely during anesthesia allows early intervention on our part and prevents anesthetic risks to your pet.
In House Laboratory
Our in-house laboratory allows us to perform an array of diagnostic tests that help us care for your pet. This ranges from simple laboratory tests to more complex diagnostic tools that help us in treating your pet.
In an emergency situation, this is an invaluable tool that can save a life.

We proudly offer 24-hour monitoring to your pet, to make sure that they’re healing properly and that no issues arise after an emergency situation. Rest assured we’ll be there to make sure they go home happier and healthier than ever.
