REFERRALS TO SPECIALISTS
What is a Specialist Referral?
Referral to a veterinary specialist is similar to what happens with humans that need to see a specialist doctor (such as an Oncologist). Most conditions can be handled by your general practice vet, but when a disease is severe or complicated, your pet may need help from a veterinarian who has had additional training in a certain field.
As a trusted leader in animal emergency care, Perth Vet Emergency will discuss best treatment options for your pet and will recommend appropriate specialist options if required.
