Critical Care

Services-icon-critical-careOur hospitals have been built on the foundation of critical care medicine.

The founding owners and current owner were all small animal emergency and critical care board-certified specialists.  This is a forward-thinking specialty that “plans and prepares prior to doing.”

Critical care is all about the details – paying close attention to small changes in your pets and their parameters. Our hospitals are training centers for this specialty and has the most board-certified critical care specialists in Southern California. Our specialists actively publish reference journal articles and also lecture across the nation. The Department of Critical Care often assists throughout the entire hospital when pets or other specialists are in need. Critical care is a diverse specialty with the ability to perform emergent surgeries or manage some of the sickest internal medicine or cardiology patients. Our hospitals include having full stat labs available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to manage pets that are rapidly changing.
