Intensive Care

Our dedicated intensive care ward enables us to manage critical medical and surgical patients 24 hours a day. This ward provides kennelling for these patients in close proximity to the preparatory room to allow access to maximum facilities and anaesthesia staff in an emergency situation.

It is manned by qualified veterinary nurses, 24 hours a day, who have undergone additional training in management of these critical patients. Monitoring via multi-parameter monitors includes: blood pressure, ECG, kennel side blood gas analysis and pulse oximetry and these are all linked wirelessly to a central station where they can be closely monitored. Fluid administration is via a drip pump to enable accurate dosage and management and blood transfusions are performed when required. An onsite laboratory allows regular monitoring of these patient’s statuses.

Incubators are available for smaller patients that require warming and all kennels have individual thermostatic control via heating pads at the back to meet each patient’s needs and prevent pressure burns in patients that need to lay down. There is piped oxygen directly into the ward to enable supplementation when required.
