Specialized Critical Care
Our ICU is staffed with highly skilled veterinary professionals trained in providing round-the-clock, 24/7 specialized care for critically ill or injured animals, ensuring their stability, comfort, and well-being.
Our ICU uses advanced monitoring equipment, allowing for continuous tracking of vital signs, oxygen levels, heart function, and more. This ensures prompt intervention and individualized treatment plans.
Features of Our 24/7 Emergency Vet Center
VHA’s emergency center is designed to provide optimal emergency and critical care to pets when they need it most.
Some unique features of our ultra-modern facility include:
Intensive Care Unit
Our advanced Intensive Care Unit (ICU) provides 24/7 specialized care and cutting-edge monitoring. The ICU and emergency vet teams are highly trained in nursing, stabilizing critical patients, and maintaining a calm atmosphere. Their knowledge includes laboratory testing, radiology, and surgery. They are all equally committed to providing supportive care to help our patients make a full recovery.
Enhanced Air Filtration
Our ICU has specialized air filtration systems to maintain a clean and sterile environment, reducing the risk of infection and providing an optimal setting for healing and recovery.
Intermediate Care Ward
Our Intermediate Care Ward offers a nurturing environment for pets on their journey to recovery. This ward is ideal for pets that require some monitoring and attention but do not need the intensive, round-the-clock care provided in the ICU. It serves as a transitional space where pets can experience healing in a safe, peaceful environment.
Our Kitty Ward is a tranquil and separate area exclusively for feline patients, minimizing stress and providing a calm space for their comfort and well-being. Our experienced staff is trained in feline care and understands the unique needs of cats, ensuring personalized attention, gentle handling, and individualized treatment plans.
We have incorporated chromatherapy into our wards to enhance healing and peacefulness for our patients. Chromatherapy uses color and light to promote relaxation and well-being, creating an optimal environment for your pet to recover and thrive.
