ICU: Specialized Care for Critically Ill
& Post–Operative Patients
At Odyssey Veterinary Care, we understand the stress and anxiety you may feel when your pet is ill or hospitalized for a surgical procedure. Our intensive care unit (ICU) offers our critically ill and post-operative patients the extra care they require in order to make a safe and speedy recovery. This state-of-the-art unit is centrally located in the treatment area, which provides the capability for continuous monitoring. Each ICU cage is individually heated and equipped to deliver oxygen and aerosolized medications. While many of our patients sleep due to the warm oxygenated environment, our veterinarians and technicians are never more than a few steps away should your critter need additional medications, a walk on the patio, a snack, or perhaps just a long head scratch or belly rub.
You can take comfort knowing that your furry family member will be getting the highest quality care possible from our certified veterinary staff and experienced veterinarians. Their continuous monitoring routine includes checking the patient’s temperature, mentation, heart and respiratory rate, and pain score. Sequential lab work may be performed to assess response to treatment. Timely communication with owners is a top priority to keep you informed and allow for input and feedback about the ongoing care for your pet.
Odyssey goes above and beyond my expectations, and truly cares about my dog. We will always come back to Odyssey and highly recommend it to anyone who asks!
Dr. Bruss is great—he is very kind and caring. He called us several times to explain our options and didn’t pressure us to make a particular decision.
My dog sees Dr. Stokes for his vet care and she is the best vet ever. She understands my dog’s unique needs and I highly recommend them!
No matter which vet we've seen, they’ve always been loving and compassionate whether we were there just for yearly vaccinations or for something a bit more serious.
I am in love with all of the staff at this facility. If I could, I would want to be treated there, but sadly, they only take the four legged types...
Wouldn’t go anywhere else! I feel surrounded by people that love animals as much as I do. Wouldn’t change a thing.
Services are very reasonably priced and we've never felt like we had any unnecessary procedures or products pushed on us. we really feel that we can trust Dr. Bruss and Odyssey Veterinary Care with our cats’ health.

Dr. stokes has seen our family through kitten to senior cat, puppy and loss of dog, new puppy and everything in the middle! We think the care our animals get here is top notch!
Great people, great care! You've all made such a difference in my life and Abby's too. Thanks Odyssey Staff!
When they prescribed my dog eye drops for an infection, they gave me the instructions and then called me within a 48 hour period to ask me how the medication was going and if I had any questions.
They are very friendly and very thorough. The dog loves them, and she’s shy, so that’s a good thing. We have always had a lot of confidence in what they have told us.
They happily accommodate our special request to see our big dogs in their fenced back yard, since our 100-pound German Shepherd gets nervous in a small examination room.
We bring our dog to Odyssey Vet Clinic and will continue to do so as long as we live in this area. They are the best vets we’ve ever had.
They are very friendly, and they always remind you of when your appointments are. They are the top veterinary hospital in Madison. They are very good.
