Each SAGE facility 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 of many types, blood or plasma transfusions, surgery, nutritional delivery, pain control, and of course, TLC. These efforts improve the quality of care your pet receives during this crucial time, bettering the chances for a good outcome.
SAGE has specialists 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. Dr. Jessica Beymer is located at our Concord hospital, Dr. Sara Lefman in Redwood City, and Dr. Christine Wong and Dr. Terence Krentz in Campbell.
