Fluid Therapy

Like human medicine, intravenous fluids form an integral role in the modern veterinary hospital setting. Fluid therapy remains one of the cornerstone treatments for a variety of medical conditions and is used routinely to maintain blood pressure and allow intravenous access for many of our surgical procedures.

Intravenous fluids are used routinely for a number of conditions including, but not limited to:

  • Severe diarrhoea

  • Dehydration
  • Pancreatitis
  • Bowel obstructions
  • Peritonitis
  • Paediatric and geriatric pets
  • Acute and chronic Vomiting
  • Diabetic Keto-acidotic patients
  • Cancer patients

As a result, the hospital stocks a full range of fluids to assist in treating your pet with electronic fluid pumps which can be set to deliver the precise amount of fluid at a precise rate at any time of day to your pet.

This gives us another ‘tool in the shed’ to offer the best care for your pets.
