Veterinary Specialist Referrals


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

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

We make referral recommendations because we want to ensure that our patients receive the highest standard of care and the best possible outcome.  We have established several relationships with area specialists and trust these veterinarians with the care of our patients.  Be assured that when we refer a patient to another 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.
