Hospital facilities are setup for patient comfort and continual observation during operating hours. Web camera surveillance allows the doctors to monitor offsite in the evenings. Critical cases are referred to the Animal Emergency Clinic of Conroe for after hours care if needed. A separate visually monitored isolation ward and special species care units are also utilized to reduce risk of contagion and patient stress. An illness that requires a hospitalization is stressful for patient and owners alike – frequent attendance by doctors and technicians, and updated communication with owners attempts to minimize the discomfort of this difficult time for all involved.
