Every so often, a pet may become ill and require hospitalized intensive care. At Caring Hands, we can provide the care necessary to get your pet feeling well again. Some examples of illnesses that may require hospitalization include GI upset, kidney disease, diabetes, urethral obstruction, and many others. Hospitalized patients requiring intensive care are kept in our treatment area, where they are closely monitored by our licensed veterinary technicians and veterinarians.
During their hospital stay, your pet may be on IV fluids and may receive various medications throughout the day. We can also accommodate patients that may require oxygen therapy or need to be isolated due to infections or a suppressed immune system. We can do many diagnostics right here in-house, including basic blood work, x-rays, and ultrasound. This helps us figure out your pet’s underlying illness more quickly so that we can start treatment as soon as possible.
If necessary, we work closely with local emergency and critical care specialists and can facilitate transfer to a 24 hour facility to ensure your pet receives the best treatment possible.
Our team strives to keep you well-informed with regular updates on your pet’s progress throughout their hospital stay, and you are always welcome to call with any questions. We want your pet to feel as comfortable as possible while they are here, and we are happy to use food or blankets from home if requested.
Please don’t hesitate to call us if you have any additional questions about our intensive care and hospitalization for sick pets.
