Critical Care

​​​​​​DVR provides critical care for pre- and post-operative surgical cases and spontaneously ill animals and consults with investigators on anesthetic and post-procedural monitoring during protocol design. Animals can be isolated, monitored, and provided with intensive clinical treatment until they are stable enough to be returned to their regular housing environment. This facility is equipped with Kirschner cages, mobile emergency resuscitation equipment, ambulatory telemetry capabilities, and other essential critical care equipment.​
