There are a number of reasons pets are placed in the intensive care section of our hospital and major surgical procedures and trauma are two of the most common. Gulf Coast Veterinary Hospital is fully-equipped to expertly handle the monitoring needed in an intensive care setting. Heart rate, blood pressure, and fluid levels are all carefully monitored when a pet is cared for in our unit. If your furry family member is facing a life-threatening situation that requires intensive care, you can rely on the equipment at Gulf Coast and the experience of Dr. Sandifar for their care.
