Nursing Care

Caring for a sick or injured pet involves many aspects that you may not expect. It is easy to overlook how independently our pets live until you are asked to meet their most basic needs. When caring for a sick or recovering pet, it is typical to be asked to keep your pet in a safe and confined environment. Special temperature requirements may be necessary, and may involve keeping a pet warmer or cooler than normal.

You will learn to observe appetite, activity and eliminations and perhaps administer medications or simple medical treatments. You should have a complete understanding of everything that will be required before your pet leaves the hospital to make the transition to home care as smooth as possible. Have a plan on hand in the event something unexpected arises or an emergency occurs.

We are proud to offer your hospitalized pet nursing care. Doctors are on call on Sundays.
