Intensive Care

Virgin Valley Veterinary Hospital is not just a veterinary clinic and kennel for outpatients. We are also a full-service hospital boasting a surgical suite and intensive care areas for our more seriously ill patients.

Intensive care is specialized care where our highly trained and capable staff will monitor your pet in order to help them heal adequately from illness or injury. If your pet needs this type of care their blood pressure, breathing rates, oxygen levels and heart rate are continuously monitored. Pain levels are assessed and your pet may be kept under sedation to keep them still and free from agitation. Our doctors will be closely monitoring the reactions your pet has to medication and once they feel your pet is stable, they will be brought out of intensive care and allowed to transition to home care. After all, pets heal best in comfortable surroundings: at home with their human family.
