Specialist Referrals

Specialist Referrals

When an animal develops an unusual or more complex illness or injury, there is often a need for specialised expertise and equipment to properly diagnose and treat the problem. If your pet has a problem that requires this level of expertise we can refer you to a specialist that has earned our trust and confidence in order to give your pet the optimal chance of recovery.  We have an internal referral system to a specialist surgeon from Veterinary Specialist Surgery Australia who comes to our clinic to complete more technical work in our clinic without any need for you to travel or organise anything.  

Australian registered veterinary specialists undergo a rigorous training and examination process to obtain their qualifications, and like human specialists are considered to be the epitome of knowledge in their field. We work closely alongside the specialists and together can offer optimal care for pets that require this service.

In the event your pet is referred to an external specialist they are independant of our system, it's a good idea to ask them about costs when you book in for your appontment.  We will be kept updated of the progress and diagnosis as the case progresses.  Our sense of responsibility doesn't end just because you've taken your pet to a specialist. If you find yourself faced with difficult decisions regarding the recommended treatment, please don't hesitate to call us. We'll be pleased to help you evaluate your options.

We’re happy to discuss and organise a specialist referral if required by your pet.
