Critical Care

DoveLewis operates a fully equipped, state-of-the-art Intensive Care Unit staffed by highly trained veterinarians and veterinary technicians. DoveLewis has a team of board-certified critical care specialist veterinarians (criticalists) and certified emergency and critical care veterinary technicians to provide specialized care for our patients. Critical care is a veterinary specialty – with very few veterinarians in the country certified at this level. Criticalists undergo an additional four years of specialized training and certification in treating animals with life-threatening conditions caused by trauma or severe illness.

Critical patients are closely monitored with continuous ECGs, oxygen support, fluid pumps, blood pressure monitoring and other advanced procedures. All DoveLewis patients receive round-the-clock observation and treatment. Once the patient is stabilized and out of immediate danger, he or she can either return home or go to your regular veterinarian.
