A crucial part of our ability to provide the best care possible for your sick pet is our overnight hospitalization. After your pet has been examined and a plan developed for their care, they may need constant care and monitoring for a period of time. These pets are admitted into our hospital for overnight care. Each night, our overnight attendant can ensure your pet is clean, comfortable, give IV medications, monitor IV fluids, give oral or topical medications, monitor breathing, temperature and mentation. If any concerns arrise overnight, we have a doctor on call for our hospitalized and boarding pets. You are also welcome to call any time, day or night to check on the status of your pet and see if they are comfortable. The lenth of stay in the hospital depends upon the severity of the illness and amount of care required to get them through a severe illness.

Hospital Surgical Recovery
At Newport Harbor Animal Hospital, we are able to perform a wide variety of surgical procedures including orthopedic, cancer and emergency surgeries. Many of these patients will require intensive care post operatively. Our hospital is equipped and staffed to aid our patients in a gentle, safe and painfree recovery. After surgery, these patients are admitted into our hospital to optimize the recovery process. Our veterinary doctors and technicians will care for your pet as if it was their own to insure a gentle surgical recovery and in preparation for their return home.
When Can Your Pet Leave The Hospital?
Your companion should stay in pet urgent care until its medical conditions have stabilized, and the in-home care you can provide will be sufficient to support them through the rest of their recovery. We do not like to keep animals away from their families any longer than absolutely necessary, but it is important to understand that extra care and monitoring may be necessary after some surgical procedures and medical emergencies. Our goal is to make sure that your beloved companion can return home safely and enjoy a full recovery.
While everyone hopes to avoid an emergency situation with their pet, we are here for you during the time when you need us. At Newport Harbor Animal Hospital we are committed to providing the highest quality veterinary care when you and your pet when us most.
