Hospitalization and Intensive Care

If it is necessary for your pet to be admitted to the hospital for treatment, we will provide everything needed for her comfort and care. We have leashes, bowls, and blankets here. The entire hospital is climate-controlled, for your pets’ comfort.

We believe the best way to speed up the healing process is for a pet to spend time with their owner. Ask your pet’s veterinarian if visitation would be advisable during her stay. In some circumstances it is not ideal for your pet to have visitors-but in general we not only allow visitation, but encourage it for its therapeutic value.
