Brief description of service We offer a critical care service to look after sick and compromised pets.

Regular lists are conducted at specialist veterinary referral hospital in Johannesburg. Appointments with your veterinarian can be arranged.

Intensive Care Services
Worried about sick and compromised pets? Always wondering if only I had been there at the right time things may have been different? We all know the work required for critically ill patients is time consuming and requires dedication that we do not always have in our busy days. There is a solution: we now offer a critical care service to look after these patients.

Pain Management
Chronic and intense uncontrolled acute pain in animals generates emotional concern for many owners. Providing optimal care can be frustrating as multiple drugs are used, individualised dosing regimens need to be determined and a pain free outcome is difficult to achieve. Our service includes the management of both acute and chronic pain resulting from a variety of conditions.

Pain management is done in collaboration with the referring vet. An initial consult is done to formulate a plan and provide pain management. Any screening of vital organ function is done. A plan is then formulated to manage the pain. The owner is educated about pain assessment and instructed to start a pain diary. Follow up consults are done with owner on a scheduled basis and adjustments in therapy done as required based on the information in the pain diary. Follow up consultations are scheduled as required based on the feed back provided and regular screening of organ function conducted as required. The referring vet is regularly updated with the progress of the patient.
