Intensive Care

Pet Intensive Care in the Stephenville Area

Intensive care for pets is very similar to that for humans. River North Small Animal Hospital offers this critical service in the Stephenville area.  When a pet experiences an injury, or illness that destabilizes them, they require extensive monitoring, medications, and possibly even procedures. Progress in the treatment of critically ill pets allows for more positive resolutions to veterinary emergencies possible. New processes, drugs, and practices have increased the options available for treatment and the outcomes when your pet needs it the most.

Reasons Your Pet May Need Intensive Care Veterinarian Services

There are many reasons that a pet may require critical care interventions. The first and most apparent reason is accidents. Pets get into things they aren't supposed to, and often ingest poisonous substances, they can be hit by cars, or they may simply have a severe illness which they need support to overcome. These situations require extensive care, and River North Small Animal Hospital is prepared to deliver that care and support your pet to return to a stable condition. 

Another reason your pet may need intensive care services is if they have an operation and need around-the-clock monitoring for any complications. The staff at River North Small Animal Hospital is dedicated to watching over your pet as they recover, ensuring that there are no problems, and addressing them if they do arise.
