A Level I emergency and critical care facility is a 24-hour acute care facility with the resources and specialty training necessary to provide sophisticated emergent and critical patient care. In order to achieve this high-level status, the CARES doctors, nurses, and staff demonstrated their commitment to excellence in the areas of veterinary expertise, staffing, continuing education, emergency capabilities, state-of-the-art facility, and much more.
