In an emergency, you can count on VESH to be open and fully staffed in order to provide your pet with essential life-saving treatment, surgery, and hospitalization.
Our Emergency Service is available 24 hours a day to treat your dog or cat for a wide variety of medical emergencies that can arise. Like human emergency rooms, we see emergency patients on a first-come, first-serve basis, with critically ill or injured patients receiving priority (we do not accept emergency appointments). This may result in a wait during busy times, so we provide free wireless service, TV, and a snack and soda machine to help make your stay with us more comfortable.
Our fully staffed Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is also open 24 hours a day and can provide your hospitalized pet with the maximum level of care that critically ill patients require including consistent medication treatment and pain control, IV fluids, advanced monitoring (including electrocardiogram, blood pressure, pulse oximetry, and central venous pressure), oxygen therapy, and most importantly, tender loving care, during their recovery.
Our advanced capabilities and specialized equipment includes:
Blood pressure monitors
Central venous pressure monitors
Continuous ECG wireless telemetry
CPR equipment including EKG's and defibrillator
Digital X-ray machine
End tidal carbon dioxide monitor
Laboratory (coagulation, blood chemistry and blood gases, urinalysis, lactate, etc.)
