Help improve emergency care for pets

The Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care Service at the Veterinary Medical Center at Ohio State provides care for dogs and cats with many types of emergent or serious conditions, offering both first response emergency care and working with your primary care veterinarian. The ER service is open every day, and provides the level and consistency of care equivalent to human medicine. 
 
In the last five years, the ER service has seen its caseload jump 65 percent, resulting in approximately 700 cases per month. Due to this rapid growth, the Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care Service is now experiencing a lack of treatment space, which decreases the efficiency of treatment for pets. This can lead to increased client wait times and lower satisfaction regarding their pet’s care.

 

Your gift will help us expand the Small Animal Emergency and Critical Care Service treatment space, and purchase the equipment necessary for this new area.

 

The new expanded space will include mounted bedside monitors to track patient vitals such as heart rate and blood pressure, which reduces traffic created by rolling monitors, as well as new oxygen cages used to alleviate the difficulty in breathing for certain patients. This will empower us to continue providing the highest quality of emergency pet care in our community. 

 

Help us continue to offer the highest level of care when your pet needs it most!
