Vet Referrals

Maintaining top-quality care for our patients and clients.

Our team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians provide many services at our clinic, ranging from routine to advanced procedures. Although we handle the majority of your pet’s medical and surgical needs in-house, we occasionally refer patients to veterinary specialists or specialty clinics when advanced training or equipment will be beneficial. If you would like a referral, call us at 705-692-4446.

Why do I need a vet referral for my dog or cat?

Board-certified specialists, such as oncologists, ophthalmologists, and neurologists, have extensive experience and training in a particular area of veterinary medicine or surgery. Specialty clinics and university-affiliated referral centers have specialized equipment to perform procedures not routinely performed by general veterinary practitioners.

We make referral decisions because we want to ensure our patients receive a high standard of care and the best possible outcome. Be assured that when we refer a patient to another hospital, we continue to stay involved with his or her care, consulting with the treating specialist and often providing follow-up care and rehabilitation.
