Specialty and Critical Care

Specialty and Critical Care

Advanced surgical services

At Bronx Veterinary Center, we are proud to provide more than just routine care—we also see critical and emergency cases, provide daytime hospitalization, and perform specialty surgical services—at a cost that is less than most other area specialty clinics. In addition, we’re also able to provide second opinions. 

As well as routine procedures such as spays, neuters, lumpectomies, and dental prophies, we can perform more complex procedures, such as: 

  • Orthopedic surgeries
  • Specialty dental procedures
  • Perineal urethrostomy (PU) surgery
  • Brachycephalic obstructive airway surgery (BOAS)
  • Endoscopies
  • And more! 

We have a well-equipped surgical suite with the latest equipment, including surgical vessel sealers, oxygen therapy, and the latest in anesthesia administration and monitoring. During your pet’s procedure, their vital signs and comfort will be continuously monitored by our skilled staff, and pain medication is administered as needed before, during, and after the procedure. 

We’re ready for the unexpected 

We know how stressful a pet emergency can be. During our open hours, we are equipped and ready to handle a host of emergency and urgent care scenarios. We also have the capacity to provide daytime hospitalization and intensive care services. 

If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency during our open hours, call us immediately at (718) 933-1002. If possible, please provide as much information as you can so that we can be fully prepared for your arrival.

 When to seek emergency care for your pet

If you’re worried, then we want to hear from you! You should always seek out medical care for your pet in any scenario where you feel it can’t wait. But in general, here are a few things that indicate your pet is in need or urgent medical care: 

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sudden abdominal swelling
  • Severe bleeding
  • Seizures
  • Inability to urinate or defecate
  • Sudden weakness or loss of consciousness
  • Severe vomiting or diarrhea
  • Extremely high (over 104) or low (under 100) temperature
