What We Do
The Critical Care Program at Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine is a same-day referral center designed to serve the needs of veterinarians in the Southeast. When a veterinarian refers a pet to the Critical Care Program, the pet owner is assured of the most advanced care available in veterinary medicine. The referral service is available Monday through Friday by contacting the College of Veterinary Medicine Small Animal Teaching Hospital.
The heart of the program is outstanding patient care. A fully staffed Intensive Care Unit at the College of Veterinary Medicine is operated 24 hours per day by highly qualified and skilled veterinary clinicians and technicians, who use all the progressive diagnostic and therapeutic equipment essential to the needs of critically ill pets. In addition to the urgent care provided at arrival, consultation services are available with specialists in surgery, neurology, ophthalmology, oncology and dermatology during a patient's hospital stay. Critical care clinicians communicate daily with pet owners and involve the referring veterinarian in the ongoing management of their patients.
