Each SAGE hospital is equipped with a 24-hour critical care unit for hospitalized patients with serious and life-threatening conditions. Critical care is the continuous support and monitoring of the animal’s needs. Those needs can include oxygen delivery, IV fluids, blood or plasma transfusions, surgery, nutritional delivery, pain control, and of course, TLC. These treatments enhance the quality of care your pet receives during this crucial time, improving the chances of a good outcome.
SAGE has specialists who are board-certified in emergency and critical care. They work closely with our emergency team of doctors at all locations. Our Criticalists have received extensive training in treating patients experiencing trauma, shock, respiratory issues, and other life-threatening conditions.
