Emergency and Critical Care at Nor Cal Vet

Critically ill pets require continuous medical supervision and constant monitoring, which is why our highly-trained doctors and support staff are here for you and your pet 24/7. Our critical care includes oxygen therapy, blood pressure monitoring, blood and plasma transfusion, emergency surgery, and nebulization. We also offer the latest technology in onsite diagnostics, including blood work (such as viral testing, coagulation testing, and blood gas testing), urine testing, imaging with ultrasound, digital radiology, and CT.

Advanced, Accessible, and Available

At Nor Cal Vet, we’re small enough to have that comforting close-knit feel while still offering an extremely high level of specialty, critical, and emergency pet care. At a moment’s notice, we’re ready to perform advanced life-saving critical care services. Whether it’s fluid therapy, cardiac monitoring, endoscopy, dialysis, emesis, or mechanical ventilation, your pet couldn’t be in more capable or compassionate hands.

We also work hand-in-hand with veterinarians across the SF Peninsula to provide their patients with round-the-clock care in times when an emergency situation occurs outside of their normal operating hours.

Our Critical Care Team

Our elite ER team has a wealth of experience in critical care and emergency pet care and veterinary medicine. They collaborate with each other and consult with Nor Cal Vet’s specialists in oncology, cardiology, radiology, internal medicine, and physical rehabilitation to provide seamless, critical care for your pet. We also have a compassionate, highly trained support staff of registered veterinary technicians, veterinary assistants, and customer service representatives to comfort you in times of stress.
