Please call Falls Road Animal Hospital if you are experiencing an emergency.

Falls Road Animal Hospital is open 7 days a week from 6AM to 8PM, and we have trained technicians to answer calls after hours.

Intensive Care

Sick patients are hospitalized in a separate Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and monitored 24 hours a day by trained technicians. Our ICU is equipped to handle patients requiring:
  • Blood and blood component transfusions
  • Continuous monitoring (pulse oxymetry, EKG, etc.)
  • Peripheral and central venous catheterization
  • Partial parenteral nutrition
  • Intravenous fluids
  • Oxygen
  • Urinary catheterization

Why Get a Second Opinion?

First, you can get a different perspective. Some doctors are more conservative and others more aggressive – there are good arguments for hearing several different options. Another doctor may come up with a completely different and promising option – one that your first doctor didn’t think of or didn’t know about. It happens; no doctor can know everything or make the right decision all the time. A second opinion serves as a general quality check to make sure you’re really getting the most up-to-date and effective treatment.

You shop around for your car, your schools, or your TV. Don’t you think you should do the same for your animal’s health?
