Emergency & Critical Care

About Emergency & Critical Care at AMC

The Emilia Saint-Amand Krimendahl Institute for Trauma Care at the Animal Medical Center is a state-of-the-art facility to provide compassionate and expert care for pets that need emergency and critical assistance. AMC is a verified veterinary trauma center, fully equipped to manage life-threatening traumatic injuries and staffed by experienced veterinarians with specialty training in emergency medicine. Our emergency room is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In partnership with the emergency room, our intensive care unit (ICU) is staffed by criticalists certified by the American College of Veterinary Emergency and Critical Care, postgraduate residents preparing for their board certification, and dedicated nurses, several of whom are also certified in veterinary emergency and critical care. Our team of clinicians works together with in-house specialists and referring veterinarians to provide the highest standard of care to our sickest patients. The ICU is staffed 24 hours a day by experienced veterinary staff. Because we never close, we are able to provide round-the-clock monitoring and treatment of critically ill pets.
