When you and your pet first arrive you will be met by our office and technical staff. Your pet will undergo triage to determine the severity of their immediate health risk.
If your pet is stable, an initial systems assessment will be performed by a veterinary technician in one of our spacious exam rooms after a visit to the floor scale, table scale or even gram scale for our tiny exotic patients.
Your pet will then be examined by the emergency veterinarian. An initial diagnosis will be made and a plan for further testing and/or treatment will be offered.
Laboratory tests may be indicated and will be performed in our in-house facilities.
These include routine organ function and whole blood screening. We are able to perform blood typing, coagulation studies and blood transfusions. Our in-house laboratory capabilities include immediate screening for certain infectious diseases common to our area.
Stabilization of critical cases is augmented by stat electrolyte testing.
If your pet's condition requires hospitalization or surgical intervention they will first visit our treatment area.
