Veterinary Critical Care

Our elite critical care and emergency medicine teams work hand-in-hand to serve critical patients who come to our hospital due to trauma, the development of an acute life-threatening illness or right after major surgery. Each patient is carefully evaluated and given a custom monitoring plan by measuring variables such as pulse, heart rate, blood pressure and more.

We are prepared to treat many different types of trauma, including:

  • Sepsis
  • Respiratory distress
  • Seizures and toxicities
  • Pancreatitis
  • Gastrointestinal distress

If your pet is in critical condition, we act immediately to stabilize them upon arrival at the hospital. Most cases are placed under the care of a critical care specialist, also known as a criticalist. Criticalists provide vital services such as:

  • Pain management and pain relief
  • Blood transfusions
  • Advanced diagnostic imaging
  • Intravenous fluids
  • Oxygen delivery
  • Vital signs monitoring
  • Nutritional support

When it comes to managing pet health crises, we work together as a capable and confident veterinary team, including across services in our hospital, to give them life-saving care. We work closely with you and your primary vet, keeping them updated on your pet’s status and ensuring they have the best possible path to recovery.

BluePearl in the Community

The Utrecht Mural on the side of our building was created in 2018 as part of a collaboration between the Dutch city of Utrecht and Portland. Created by Dutch designer Menno Anker, it symbolizes the Friendship City relationship between the two cities. In 2018, the nonprofit Portland Utrecht Network worked closely with artists from Utrecht to put on a series of cultural events comprising art and theatre. This beautiful mural was created in this context as a lasting tribute to the friendship between the two cities.
