Similar to the intensive care unit of your local hospital, the Pet Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Underwood is a highly specialized department providing urgent care to critically ill patients. Staffed around the clock, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year by our team of expertly trained vets and vet nurses, PICU ensures that each and every one of our patients are always in the most capable hands.
All the pets admitted to PICU are severely ill suffering from either a life-threatening disease condition or due to special needs such as advanced pain management. Some of the reasons a patient may visit our PICU include trauma, toxicities, severe heart disease, respiratory complications or to recover from major surgery.
Fitted with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed by a dedicated team of highly experienced staff, PICU is committed to delivering the highest quality veterinary medicine and gold standard patient care.
Although no one ever wants to experience an emergency situation with their pet, the Pet Intensive Care Unit at Underwood will be here for you whenever you and your pet need us most.
