We believe that pets function best at home rather than in the hospital, so we generally prefer to keep hospitalizations to a minimum. However, it does sometimes become necessary for an animal to be hospitalized in order to treat certain conditions that cannot be effectively treated at home.
Our Hospitalization Services involve admitting your pet into the hospital for monitoring or necessary medical care. Your pet will have their own cage or kennel within the hospital building and will be monitored closely by technicians and veterinarians throughout their stay.
During your pet’s hospitalization, we encourage visits so that you can provide comfort and reassurance to your pet. You should ask your veterinarian about the best time to call each day to receive an update, and visiting hours can be arranged at that time. While your pet is hospitalized you will receive updates to inform you about your pet’s status.
Your pet will receive medical treatments (such as medications, fluid therapy, and physical therapy) as directed by your veterinarian. Once your veterinarian determines that your pet is well enough to go home, you will be given verbal or written discharge instructions. Any follow-up appointments can be scheduled before you leave the hospital with your pet.
