Emergency and Critical Care
Emergency and Critical Care are essential elements to the services we provide at Memorial 610 Hospital for Animals. Emergency and Critical Care during normal operating hours is performed at the Memorial-610 Hospital. Our experienced team of doctors and nurses are skilled in diagnosing, treating, and monitoring critically ill animals. Many of the critical medical cases we manage at our hospital include pancreatitis cases, congestive heart failure cases, renal failure patients, and patients with severe gastrointestinal disease. Our staff is also equipped to manage emergency surgical cases, including trauma and laceration repair, gastric dilatation/volvulus (GDV), gastrotomy or enterotomy due to intestinal obstruction, splenectomy, cystotomy for obstruction of the urinary system, and various other emergency surgical procedures. All of our post operative cases are monitored closely by our doctors and nurses. During evening hours, holidays and weekends, emergency services are offered at the Katy Freeway Emergency Clinic (VERGI) and the Gulf Coast Animal Emergency Clinic also on the Katy Freeway. This arrangement allows immediate, state-of-the-art veterinary care at any moment, day or night.
