The highly trained veterinarians who make up the Emergency and Critical Care service - the 24/7 pulse of Angell - treat pets suffering from life-threatening trauma and disease. Referring veterinarians may alert the staff to an incoming case via our referral phone line, and the general public may use our walk-in emergency clinics at any hour of the day, 365 days a year.

The Critical Care Unit is equipped with continuous cardiac telemetry, blood pressure, pulse oximetry, blood gas and other monitoring devices. Specially-constructed oxygen cages provide an oxygen-enriched, temperature and humidity-controlled environment for our most critical patients. Advanced techniques such as blood component therapy, peritoneal dialysis and ventilator therapy are also available.
