Animal Emergency & Specialty Care

How We Work With Your Veterinarian

The relationship between a specialty veterinarian and a family veterinarian is important.  Specialists are an extension of your family veterinarian.  We take cases that are beyond the scope of the family vet. 

This referral is similar to when your family doctor refers you to an orthopedic surgeon for a serious knee injury.  It is not that the family veterinarian, or for that matter your family doctor, is not good at what they do.  In fact, just the opposite is true.  They are good because they refer you to a specialist, when their patient needs advanced care.
