Emergency Pet Surgery: Excellent Staff, Excellent Technology, Excellent Care
Pets that come to Emergency Vets are typically stressed beyond the normal veterinary visits. Because of illness or injury, they are in need of even greater care and monitoring as we work to restore their health. At Emergency Vets, you can expect:
- Experience—While all vets are highly educated, our veterinarians and staff also have years of experience to draw upon, allowing them to apply best practices in treatment.
- Collaboration—With 20+ veterinarians on staff, it is commonplace for doctors to confer with one another on difficult cases, assuring that your pet will have the benefit of combined knowledge.
- Compassion—One of the main reasons Emergency Vets was established was to meet the need for high-quality after-hours veterinary care. The commitment to assuring your pets have medical care available when you need it is the vision of our facility.
Our veterinarians understand the need for exceptional care when treating stressed animals, so they designed and continue to update the surgical and monitoring suites with the latest technology and equipment to be able to closely track our patients’ condition, progress, and recovery.
- ECG—Our heart monitors are designed to not only provide our veterinarians with the best data on our patients’ heart rate and condition, but also so that our veterinarians can electronically send the ECG readings to other medical experts for consultation on difficult or unusual cases.
- Digital X-ray—Emergency Vets updated to digital X-ray equipment in order to provide more accurate diagnosis for our patients. The digital technology allows for greater visibility and higher definition of the images taken so even very minute issues can be identified. In addition, the X-rays are emailed to your primary veterinarian and burned to a CD for your own records when your pet is discharged.
- Pulse oximetry—Our surgery is equipped with technology that allows us to monitor the level of oxygen in an animal’s blood without having to take a sample. While in surgery or in recovery, this allows us to assure the pet is always getting the right amount of oxygen and it alerts us if we need to provide supplemental oxygen.
Once surgery is complete, we continue monitoring our patients throughout their recovery in our intensive pet care and monitoring rooms.
