Veterinary Specialist Referrals

Our experienced team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians provides many services at our animal clinic, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Although, we handle the majority of your pet’s medical and surgical needs at our animal clinic, we occasionally refer patients to veterinary specialists or specialty veterinary hospitals when advanced training or equipment will be beneficial.

Board-certified specialists, such as oncologists, ophthalmologists, and neurologists, have extensive experience and training in a particular area of veterinary medicine or surgery. Specialty animal clinics and university-affiliated referral centers have specialized equipment to perform procedures that are not routinely performed by general veterinary practitioners.

We make referral decisions because we want to ensure that our patients receive the highest standard of care and best possible outcome. Be assured that when we refer a patient to another animal hospital, we continue to stay involved with his or her care, consulting with the treating specialist and often providing any needed follow-up care and rehabilitation.
