RVC Small Animal Referrals has one of the best equipped veterinary Intensive Care Units (ICUs) in Europe. Our large and experienced team cares for the sickest dogs and cats around the clock.

The veterinary ICU can accommodate up to 22 patients at any time and has two purpose-built oxygen cages.

In addition to state-of-the-art facilities and extensive on-site laboratory facilities and pet blood transfusion service, critical care and emergency referral patients benefit from our nutritional support service and a range of advanced procedures, including Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy.

A transdisciplinary approach 

Our emergency and critical care vets and veterinary nurses are supported 24-hours a day by each of the other specialist teams in the hospital, with whom we work closely. Our emergency and critical care vets and nurses are supported by specialists across all fields, allowing us to provide the highest level of care to critically ill patients.
