Intensive Care at Quantock Vet Hospital

Intensive Care Services

Our experienced staff and extensive equipment and facilities allow us to offer full intensive care treatment and hospitalisation of even the most complicated, high risk cases. High dependency heated recovery kennels allow our more critical patients to benefit from drip pumps and syringe drivers for the safe administration of intravenous fluids and medicines. We also have Isolation Kennels with separate drainage and ventilation to separate and treat any infectious animals. Incubators are available to give additional support; warmth, oxygen and humidity, to recovering small dogs, cats and other small pets. Kennel side equipment allows us to monitor patients’ vital signs in the same way as we do in theatre including blood pressure, ECG and SPO2 (oxygen saturation). 24-hour nursing care ensures that our patients can be monitored and treated whatever the time of day
