  • Oxygen Therapy: We can administer supplemental oxygen to your pet through various methods, such as nasal cannulas or oxygen masks, to ensure the body receives the oxygen it needs to function properly.

Comforting Relief:  Pain can be a significant obstacle to healing and recovery. In our critical care unit, we prioritize managing your pet’s pain effectively and humanely. Our comprehensive approach includes:
    • Pain Assessment: Our veterinarians are skilled at assessing your pet’s pain level through various methods, allowing us to tailor the pain management plan to their specific needs.
    • Multimodal Approach: We believe in utilizing a multimodal approach to pain management, which involves combining different medications and techniques such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), opioids, and nerve blocks. This allows for better pain control with fewer side effects.
    • Continuous Monitoring: We continuously monitor your pet’s response to pain medication and adjust the treatment plan as needed to ensure their comfort throughout their stay in the ICU. Our goal is to provide effective pain relief so your pet can focus on healing and recovery.
