Welcome to Vets4Pets Vets in Halifax
Our aim is to provide an accessible, high quality and affordable surgical referral service. All referral surgeries are undertaken by RCVS accredited CertAVP(GSAS) certificate holders with significant surgical experience and with an excellent track record of success. Our comprehensive referral surgery service is underpinned by a simple fee structure based on fixed procedure prices. In addition to managing surgical cases we provide a prompt concise and highly practical surgical advice service to our referring clinicians.
Halifax Vets4Pets Surgical Referrals is operated by Dr. Patrick Currivan GPCertSAS CertAVP(GSAS) MRCVS and Dr. James Higson CertAVP(GSAS) MRCVS. After many years of first opinion practice Dr. Currivan decided to persue his specific interest in small animal surgery and undertook considerable postgraduate training. Between 2009 and 2013 he obtained various postgraduate certificates in the area. In 2011 he established his mobile referral surgery service (vetXS External Surgery Service) and since then vetXS has grown into a highly successful mobile surgery service with more than 500 surgical cases treated each year. In late 2017 Dr. Higson joined the practice and has recently completed his CertAVP(GSAS). With this strengthening of the surgical referral team, Dr. Currivan is widening the scope of the service to include external referral as well as maintaining full capacity within the mobile surgery arm.
