Therapeutic Treatments You Can Count On
At Animal Emergency Center, pet therapy is one of the things we do best. If we determine your pet requires a therapeutic treatment after a physical examination, we have to the tools to help them get back to full health.
We offer two types of therapeutic treatments at Animal Emergency Center:
- Oxygen therapy: a treatment that provides the patient with extra oxygen via a mask, nasal catheters, or a breathing tube.
- Fluid therapy: the administration of fluids intravenously to maintain hydration.
Oxygen therapy is an important treatment for animals with signs of respiratory distress. It is often used for patients with respiratory distress, congestive heart failure, and head trauma. We can administer it a variety of ways to ensure your animal receives the best treatment possible.
Fluid therapy is one of the most common therapies provided to small animals. We may provide fluid therapy for one of many reasons, including to cure dehydration, expand and support intravascular volume, correct electrolyte disturbances, and encourage appropriate redistribution of fluids.
