There may come a time, Heaven forbid, when your pet’s illness or injury requires him to be monitored very closely by medical staff. At Meadowbrook Veterinary Clinic we have an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) in place at our hospital for that purpose.
When that happens, you can be sure your pet is getting the best treatment and care possible from our veterinarians and specially trained staff.
What may be a cause for treatment in our ICU?
- Serious injury or illness.
- When the patient’s condition needs to be stabilized or kept there.
- When the patient must be sedated.
- When medications are administered through IV or catheter.
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.
Your pet’s care is very important to us at Meadowbrook Veterinary Clinic. We want you to feel comfortable we will do everything possible to enable your pet to walk out of our hospital well on his way to recovery.
