Veterinary Specialist Referrals

Our experienced team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians provides many services at our hospital, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. We handle the majority of your pet’s medical and surgical needs in-house including many specialized and advanced diagnostic and surgical procedures. However, on occasion we may recommend referral to a veterinary specialist or specialty hospital when specific 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 hospitals and university-affiliated referral centers have specialized equipment to perform procedures that are not routinely performed by general veterinary practitioners. However, we take pride in the fact that this is a relatively rare occasion because we have the expertise and equipment to perform a wide variety of procedures and surgeries that many general veterinary practices routinely refer out.

Be assured that when we refer a patient to another hospital, we continue to stay involved with his or her care, consulting with the specialist and providing any needed follow-up care for that specific condition. Afterwards we will resume providing your pet with its continued veterinary care.
