Veterinary Ambulance Service to WestVet
WestVet provides critical care transport to our animal hospital with our pet ambulance services.
We are pleased to offer critical care transportation to the WestVet hospital 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 to WestVet for ongoing or specialty care.
Patients will be continuously monitored and treated by an accompanying certified veterinary technician. Interior modifications enable us to secure pet carriers, provide veterinary stretchers and a gurney, provide oxygen therapy through direct mask, nasal, and chamber methods, administer IV fluid therapy or blood therapy, and provide a circulating warm air blanket (bair-hugger) is also available for hypothermic patients.
The WestVet veterinary ambulance transports critical patients from referring veterinary clinics. For example, post-operative or medically ill patients that require overnight care may be safely transferred using this service.
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.
Fee for transport services are based on the distance travelled.
