Think Wild’s newly renovated Wildlife Hospital focuses on providing central Oregon’s wildlife with high quality emergency and critical care. At this time, the Wildlife Hospital expects to see about 100 injured, ill, or orphaned patients each year.

 

Purpose Built

After completing a significant renovation of the facility, our facility is proudly designed for the purpose of providing high quality wildlife medicine to our patients.

Wildlife Medicine

Working with local veterinarians and veterinary specialists, we have access to veterinary surgeons, criticalists, internists, dermatologists, and many more board-certified veterinary professionals who are willing to donate their services to the injured and ill patients in Central Oregon.

Our Treatment Room also features a comprehensive in-house laboratory. We can run basic bloodwork to measure the level of lead in the bloodstream, chemistry, and hematology within minutes to help us quickly diagnose and treat each patient.

Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

A significant majority of our patients arrive in critical condition and need extensive support. We have the capability to provide oxygen-therapy, thermoregulatory support, perform fluid therapy through placed intravenous catheters, and closely monitor these patients remotely through high-definition network cameras.

To help with rapid and comprehensive diagnostics, we hope to soon have the capability to take high-definition digital radiographs onsite.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”Wildlife Kitchen” tab_id=”1571200194627-39c088ef-f529″][vc_column_text]
