Emergency and Referral ServicesReferral Policy

Occasionally conditions will arise in which your pet may require a specialist. We maintain a close working relationship with many board certified veterinary specialists. Referrals to specialists in cardiology, neurology, ophthalmology, dermatology, oncology, dentistry and surgery can be made whenever your pet's health requires the need for more specialized care.

For example, MRI, CAT scans and radiation therapy can all be performed by local specialists. These specialists in turn keep us well-informed on the progress of your pet. Referrals to specialists are always made with the goal of providing the very best health care to your pet.
