Referral Information


We understand the trusted relationship our referring veterinarians have with their clients. Whether you are referring a patient for diagnostics, a second opinion or a specialized procedure, we provide the highest level of professional service and treat your clients with compassion and respect. Our specialists are skilled at performing a range of advanced diagnostic and surgical procedures, and will work closely with you throughout the process to provide the best course of treatment for each patient. We will provide you with a medical report following any visits, tests or procedures, and will consult with you regarding appropriate follow-up care.

To refer a client to our practice, you may use our online referral portal (preferred) or complete our convenient online referral form. You may also print out a PDF version of this form and fax it to an office. If you would like to consult with a specialist by phone, please call one of our practices.

Referring an Emergency or Critical Care case?

These are the steps to take to ensure the smooth transition of a client being transitioned to our hospital:

  • Call! The most important step – there is ALWAYS someone here to answer the phone. Please call ahead to speak with our Emergency DVMs or LVTs and help answer any questions that they may have.
  • Prep owners for what they should expect from their visit with us. A doctor or technician will happily give you an estimate during the phone call if you are considering transferring a patient. We hate to have to send unprepared owners away when they are sticker-shocked by the cost of treatment and hospitalization.
  • Transmit records. We can receive records via our referral portal, fax, or email. It is essential that we know when to start or give the next dosages of medications and that we have an accurate timeline of the patient’s stay at your facility.
  • Label well. We know that many of the cases transferred to us may have some financial concerns, and clearly labeling any drugs, medications, or fluids with their respective contents or concentrations will prevent our staff from having to toss any items where the composition or integrity is called into question.
