There may be occasions when illness or injury requires the veterinarians at Meadowbrook Veterinary Clinic to keep your pet under close observation while being treated. That is when we will recommend he or she be hospitalized with us.
At Meadowbrook Veterinary Clinic you can be sure our veterinarians and specially trained staff will carefully and closely monitor your pet’s condition while he or she is with us.
Most stays in our hospital are for a day or two. However, it is possible some critical patients that must be kept overnight or through the weekend will be referred to the Tri-County Animal Emergency Clinic in Peoria.
Hospitalization usually is required:
- After surgery, when it is necessary to make sure your pet remains in stable condition.
- When monitoring post-surgery or to gauge response to medication is important.
- When it is necessary to administer medications through IV or catheter.
- When you pet is sedated.
