Our team of emergency doctors and veterinary technicians focus on evaluating your pet’s condition quickly so that appropriate treatment can begin. From minor infections to life-threatening trauma, the AMC emergency team evaluates, diagnoses, and treats a range of medical problems including those that may require surgery.
For pets requiring hospitalization, the inpatient unit and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at AMC are designed for comfort and safety. Much like the ICU in a human hospital, the AMC 24/7 ICU has sophisticated vital signs monitoring equipment and other technology to address your pet’s health needs. The ICU and inpatient unit are staffed with compassionate veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and veterinary assistants experienced in emergency medicine. Referring veterinary hospitals may transfer pets to our emergency center at any time for overnight or around-the-clock care to be transferred back to the referring veterinarian once the patient is stable.
The hospital has a doctor on staff and on the premises 24 hours a day. The facility is equipped with a state-of-the-art intensive care unit, outfitted with advanced vital sign monitors (EKG, blood pressure, and oxygen saturation), ventilators, nebulizers, a blood bank, and oxygen therapy. Patients are supported by an on-site full service laboratory (hematology, blood chemistry, coagulation) for rapid test results, which is especially important when a patient is in critical condition.
The Animal Medical Center of Southern California is devoted to providing the best medical, surgicalm and emergency critical care available in veterinary medicine. As important as our medical expertise is, we believe that excellent care combines state-of-the-art veterinary medicine and surgery with a focus on compassion and respect for your pet and for your family.
