VSCT is a busy Emergency and Specialty Hospital which consists of specialists in surgery, internal medicine, neurology/neurosurgery, emergency/critical care, dermatology, ophthalmology, radiology, dentistry, and companion animal rehabilitation therapy in an award-winning, state-of-the-art facility open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our specialists, emergency doctors, and interns take a “one hospital” approach together with our experienced administrative and technical staff to provide the highest quality compassionate health care and service to our patients, pet owners, and referring veterinarians.
Our 32,000 sq. ft. hospital was opened in July 2004 and features a separate emergency entrance and lobby, 16 exam rooms, 4 surgical and 1 dental suite, video-endoscopy, mobile and stationary color-flow Doppler ultrasounds, a large central ICU with oxygen cage, Pulmonetics ventilator, Telemetry, portable ultrasound unit, in-house lab, spiral CT scanner, MRI, digital radiography, Iodine 131, and CO2, diode and therapeutic lasers. In addition to standard full blood analysis, our in-house lab equipment includes a colloid osmometer, lactatometer, coagulation monitoring (PT/PTT), microscope, and blood typing/crossmatching. We also have both noninvasive and invasive blood pressure monitoring, and continuous central venous pressure monitoring, as well as negative pressure wound therapy.
Our 46 cage ICU features separate wards for small breed dogs, large dog runs, and cats while keeping them all visible behind glass. This unique arrangement affords our feline patients the quiet environment they need and allows loud or infectious patients to be isolated. Our critical patients and oxygen cage are housed at the front of our ICU. We also have a fully stocked separate isolation ward as well as a step-down ward for less critical patients. Our emergency staff consists of highly skilled and trained, reliable certified veterinary technicians and veterinary assistants who are committed to supporting our doctors.
