Critical Care

Veterinary emergency and critical care is a veterinary specialty that focuses on our acutely ill, sickest patients.   Criticalists have advanced training that includes a 3 year residency culminating in a rigorous board examination.    A criticalist will care for hospitalized pets with respiratory diseases, heart failure, kidney failure, bleeding disorders, acute cancer emergencies, seizures and coma, gastrointestinal emergencies and trauma.   Critical anesthesia patients are often overseen by a board certified criticalist who works with other specialists to best help your pet.
