As veterinary medicine advances, the demand for specialized care follows. VSEC is one such hospital where 24-hours a day, experienced and dedicated emergency veterinarians are ready to care for sick or injured pets. There is always a veterinarian and highly trained registered veterinary technicians on site and your pet is never left unattended. Whether it’s a minor injury that can be handled on an outpatient basis or a more serious condition that warrants hospitalization in our intensive care unit (ICU), you can rest assured we are here to help.
Our specialists serve as health care partners to primary care veterinarians and we welcome their referrals when one of their patients can benefit from the expertise, equipment and round-the-clock care VSEC provides. This collaborative approach brings an entire team together to ensure your pet receives the best possible treatment. We communicate regularly with your veterinarian during the treatment process and they will be prepared to assume any follow up care necessary after your visit to VSEC. Serving as a resource for veterinarians is our privilege and we look forward to seeing to it that your pet gets prompt and gentle care, while we provide you with the knowledge to make decisions for your pet in a compassionate and respectful manner.
For our patients that need additional assistance with healing, we also employ the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), which significantly accelerates recovery. VSEC is one of only a few hospitals in Southern California that has a high-pressure hyperbaric chamber.
