The overnight care program at Pets Emergency Hospital (PEH) is designed to provide continuous, 24-hour care for your patients in an efficient and cost-effective manner. PEH’s goal is to help facilitate a seamless transition from area clinics to PEH and back to your clinic (or discharged to the owner) the following the morning. To provide the best experience for all involved, the patient should be stable with a working diagnosis and treatment plan and require no to very minimal diagnostics. Critical patients or patients requiring isolation or advanced or in-depth diagnostics and therapies are not eligible for the overnight care program; please consider these patients as normal transfer patients.
