Pet Intensive Care Unit

Welcome to Pet ICU, Underwood

Pet ICU – we’re here because we care

Similar to an intensive care unit (ICU) in a human hospital, Pet ICU is a purpose-built animal intensive care unit and is one of the only stand-alone dedicated animal ICUs in the country.

Our patients are in the care of Dr Ellie Leister and the team of intensive care vets and nurses. The Pet Intensive Care Unit team are specialists in emergency and critical care. We pride ourselves on the ability to practice ground-breaking critical care medicine, allowing owners to bring home the sickest of pets.

Though the smallest of the Animal Emergency Australia teams, Pet ICU makes an incredible impact on the lives of critically ill patients. We also run our own dedicated canine and feline blood bank program to administer life-saving transfusions when required.

Some of the ground-breaking medicine you’ll get to practice includes;

  • Life Support (mechanical ventilation)
  • Intensive Monitoring and Critical Care
  • Blood and Plasma Transfusions
  • Oxygen Support
  • Nutrition Support
  • Pain Management
  • Blood Pressure Support
  • Post-Operative Care

In Pet ICU you’ll care for domestic animals giving them a second chance at life, where your hands on treatment and your care will be crucial to their survival.

Being located in Underwood we are centrally located close to the City of Brisbane at just a 30-minute drive, as well as being only a 30 minute drive from the famous Gold Coast, and a 90 minute drive to the Sunshine Coast.

You’ll also have the flexibility of planning your lifestyle around work to get the best out of your days. It’s not all work – we enjoy socialising together as a team too!
