The GSVS Emergency and Critical Care Service is open and available 24 hours per day, every day of the year. Your primary veterinarian may refer your pet or you can walk in at any time.

The GSVS Emergency and Critical Care Service is overseen by three Criticalists: Kate Palmer, Janan Abed, and Ron Achiel – all have been Residency Trained in Emergency/Critical Care. Dr. Palmer and Dr. Achiel are both Board Certified in this discipline.

Additionally, the service is staffed by multiple doctors who elect to focus their career in ER medicine or rotate though various departments in the hospital. When your pet is experiencing an emergency and is brought to GSVS, he or she will not only be treated by the primary doctor seen upon initial exam, but will also receive care from the entire team moving forward. We find this model unique among veterinary specialty hospitals. We take pride that your pet will receive specialty care even if he/she is not seeing a critical care specialist directly.

If you are unsure if your pet is experiencing an emergency, you can call us anytime or bring your pet to our hospital. We are fully equipped to provide treatment for ANY emergency situation.

Advanced services and treatments that can be provided by the Emergency and Critical Care department in our Intensive Care Unit include:

  • Cardiopulmonary resuscitation
  • Emergency bedside ultrasound
  • In-house cytology and blood work
  • Supplemental oxygen
  • Transfusion therapy
  • Mechanical ventilation
  • Supplemental enteral and parenteral nutrition
  • Anesthesia support
  • Respiratory, circulatory, and cardiac monitoring
