Veterinary Ambulance Service to WestVet
We offer critical care transportation to WestVet from your family veterinarian's clinic. The transport vehicle, a modified ambulance fully equipped for veterinary care, ensures that critically ill or injured pets receive necessary medical treatment and monitoring during transfer. WestVet's veterinary ambulance transports critical patients from referring veterinary clinics such as post-operative patients that require overnight care.
Patients are continuously monitored by an accompanying certified veterinary technician. Interior modifications enable the WestVet emergency team to secure pet carriers, provide veterinary stretchers and a gurney, provide oxygen therapy through a direct mask, nasal, and chamber methods, administer IV fluid therapy or blood therapy, and provide a circulating warm air blanket (bair-hugger) for hypothermic patients.
Our transportation services are offered Monday through Friday, 5 PM to 8 PM, based on availability. Referring veterinarians should contact WestVet at 208.375.1600 by 4 PM weekdays to schedule a transfer.
Fees for transport service are based on the distance traveled.
