ICU Visiting Hours

We understand that being separated from your pet can be stressful to both you and your pet. We will make sure that your pet is not only given the medical care they need but also plenty of love and attention.
Our visitation hours are 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm and 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Visits may be delayed due to the unpredictable nature of patient care and emergency activity within the ICU.
Visitation with pets is available to immediate family. Owners will need to provide prior notice and approval for anyone other than immediate family to visit their pet.
Visits are limited to 10 minutes with pets confined to ICU and 30 minutes with pets who may be removed from their cages. Limiting visitation time will ensure each pet receives necessary treatments and tests at proper intervals.
Due to the limited space in the ICU, only two people may visit each pet at a single time. While visiting, please do not approach other patients’ cages or clinicians treating other patients.
Please understand that due to the nature of working in an emergency and specialty hospital, nursing staff and veterinarians may not be available to discuss your pet’s case at the time of visitation.
Unfortunately, any patients placed in our isolation ward will not be permitted personal visits.
