Intensive Care Unit
Our hospital offers an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for treating your pet during times of critical need. Our staff and veterinarians will determine if your pet requires the ICU services. Special equipment to help critically ill pets, such as blood pressure monitors, ECG machines, pulse oximeters, incubators, oxygen cages and ventilators are available in our ICU. Jugular catheters, chest tubes, arterial blood pressure lines, on site blood analysis, special nutrition services (placement of feeding tubes, total parenteral nutrition provided intravenously), and a variety of therapies to control pain are just a few of the things that are available for your seriously ill pet. Life resuscitation equipment is also available if needed.
If Your Pet Must Be Hospitalized
We understand that being away from your pet while he or she is receiving treatment and care in our hospital can be a worrisome time. We want you to know that when your pet stays with us at Adobe Animal Hospital, he or she will be examined and carefully monitored by our outstanding staff of technicians and veterinarians. We ensure that all of the pet patients who stay with us overnight are cared for by some of the best trained and most caring people in veterinary medicine. Our dedicated staff will be there for all of your pets needs.
Who will be taking care of my pet?
Our hospital is staffed 24 hours a day. Veterinary technicians and assistants are on duty in the clinic at all times to observe, monitor, and treat your pet. Depending upon the length of your pets hospitalization, his or her care may be transferred from one of our highly skilled veterinarians to another because of shift changes and rotations. Because they work together as a team and have access to your pets electronic medical records, our staff can ensure that your pet receives comprehensive, continuous care throughout his or her stay with us.
What if my pet is critical and needs a doctor on overnight?
Our wonderful and skills teams of veterinary technicians and assistants can take care of most patients overnight but if your pet is critical and needs to monitored by a DVM, we will assist you in transferring your pet to a local ER facility. Your doctor will work with you to find the right hospital for your pet and to facilitate the transfer before our last doctor leaves at 9pm.
