Critical Care at Veterinary Specialists and Emergency Services
A critical care specialist’s job often involves initially stabilizing emergency patients upon arrival to our hospital. When it is determined what further advanced care is necessary, the critical care doctor continues to work closely with our other hospital clinicians to ensure the best ongoing monitoring and care.
