Meet the ICU Team

Pets admitted to the Intensive Care Unit are treated by our world-renowned team to provide round-the-clock care.

Our ICU is staffed by full-time attending veterinarians who are board-certified specialists in emergency and critical care (Diplomates of ACVECC), licensed veterinary technicians who specialize in intensive care nursing, many of whom have specialty certification (AVECCT), as well as residents training to become emergency and critical care specialists, and interns seeking advanced training after graduation from veterinary school.

Often working behind the scenes, the ICU staff ensures the best possible outcome for your critically ill pet by providing the most advanced care available.
