Sometimes a case necessitates the services of a specialist, either in the form of a case discussion, an examination of X-ray images or ECG traces, or a physical examination of the patient at a specialist centre for that particular area of medicine or surgery. Most referral appointments are arranged very quickly, often within a few days. See below for links to the referral centres we use most often.
We are able to perform many orthopaedic procedures "in-house" so your pet doesn't need to travel further afield, but will refer the more complicated cases to specialist surgeons in referral centres.
Our dog and cat patients can also be referred for physiotherapy and hydrotherapy for a variety of issues, including post-operative rehabilitation, joint stiffness, soft tissue injury and movement dysfunction.
