VCA SE Portland Surgery Specialists

Intensive Care Unit

Our hospital offers an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for treating your pet after surgery and during times of critical need. ICU's are most often found at specialty hospitals with 24-hour care.

Post-operative patients require specialized nursing staff who are also trained in advanced techniques and monitoring and may also have undergone additional certification. Special equipment to help critically ill pets, such as blood pressure monitors, ECG machines, pulse oximeters, incubators, oxygen cages and ventilators are available at these facilities. Jugular catheters, chest tubes, arterial blood pressure lines, on site blood analysis, special nutrition services (placement of feeding tubes, total parenteral nutrition provided intravenously), and a variety of therapies to control pain are just a few of the things that will be available for your seriously ill pet. Life resuscitation equipment is also available if needed.
