The Treatment Area is the heart of the hospital. This is where many procedures are performed in the course of examination, diagnosis and treatment.
Most procedures which require general anesthesia are initiated in the Treatment Area. Anesthetized pets may then be moved to other areas of the hospital (e.g. radiology, surgery). Inhalation anesthesia is used for the ultimate in safety for the patient, and anesthetic gases are evacuated to the outside for the safety of the staff.
A large bank of cages in the Treatment Area allows for intensive care monitoring and anesthesia/surgical recovery.
