Intensive Care

  • PDF

 

At Aboite Animal Hospital, we understand the importance of appropriate intensive care for those critically ill and post surgery patients. This level of care may include administration of oxygen, intravenous fluid and electrolyte replacement, blood transfusion, pain management or an environmentally warm recovery unit.

 
 
 
   
In cases of kidney failure, dehydration, or extended periods of vomiting, diarrhea or anorexia, it becomes necessary to administer intravenous fluids and electrolytes “around the clock”. In our intensive care ward, we can have up to five animals at any point in time on infusion pumps which administer intravenously the correct number of drops of fluids per minute based upon the animal’s body weight and medical condition.  
Controlling or eliminating pain following trauma or prior to a surgical procedure is not only the humane thing to do, but it also speeds up the healing process. Utilizing appropriate pain management protocols, all surgical patients receive a combination of analgesics prior to their surgical procedure to disrupt the pain cycle.
