24/7 Emergency Care
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to care for critically ill patients. If your pet is having a medical emergency, please contact us at (253) 983-1114
About our department:
Every effort is made to schedule emergencies directly with the appropriate specialty service, but in some cases admission and initial management is in our critical care unit under supervision of critical care and emergency doctors. All of our doctors are highly skilled and able to provide diagnostic and supportive care, and internal consultations with appropriate specialists are facilitated. You may not be able to immediately speak with a particular specialist directly, but your pet will be fully cared for in the interim.
For veterinarians seeking ER transfers or referrals:
We welcome transfers of patients that may require intensive support, monitoring, and 24-hour care. If you wish to transfer an emergency patient directly from your hospital, we request that you call to speak with the receiving doctor or service so that we may be prepared for your patient and client. Please fax relevant records to 253-983-1115 as soon as they are available. Feel free to provide clients with our client information and patient history forms which they may fill out on the way.
