Your pet may be referred to a Specialist Centre if your vet believes specific care is needed

What is a referral?

Your vet may recommend sending your pet to a Specialist Centre if they believe specific care is needed; this could be because your pet has a complex diagnosis and would benefit from seeing an expert in that field, or simply that the treatment your pet needs may not be able to be performed at your regular vet practice. 

Should you be referred to a specialist centre, you will see a specialist vet who will have undertaken substantial clinical training in a specific area of expertise and gained additional experience in that field. 

My pet is being referred, what should I expect?

Following a referral to a Specialist Centre, your vet will share information about your pet’s condition as well as pass on your convenient appointment times.   

The Specialist Centre will then call you to confirm your appointment time, discuss a likely estimate for treatment based on the history of your pet that your vet has provided, and confirm any documentation you need to bring (such as your insurance paperwork). 

When you see the specialist vet, they will perform an examination and discuss possible treatment routes and any prices associated with them.  

We would like to take this opportunity to let you know that it is more than likely your pet will need to be left in the care of the Specialist Centre, and in some rarer cases for longer than one night. 

Can I book an appointment with a Specialist Centre?

Unfortunately, you cannot book directly with a Specialist Centre as they take on specific cases from a referring vet. 

We would always recommend visiting your usual vet in the first instance if you believe your pet is unwell.
