The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is designed to accommodate the special needs of the critically ill neonate as well as pregnant animals at increased risk for complications and provide their babies with lifesaving critical care beginning even before birth.
The NICU is staffed by neonatologists and residents with dedicated, specially trained veterinary technicians on site around the clock.
Delivering intensive care as soon as a problem is recognized is important when caring for neonates (newborns during their first month of life) to achieve a successful outcome. Critically ill neonates, especially foals, are often admitted to the NICU in the middle of the night, receiving intensive care within hours of birth.
