Specialist Referrals

When an animal develops an unusual illness or injury, there is sometimes a need for specialised expertise and equipment to properly diagnose and treat the problem. If your pet has a problem that requires this level of expertise we can refer you to a specialist that has earned our trust and confidence in order to give your pet the optimal chance of recovery. Our recommended specialist service for Dogs & Cats due to years of ongoing assistance, trust & location is Veterinary Specialist Services in Carrara or Underwood(depending on case need). Exotics are referred to Brisbane Bird & Exotics Veterinary Specialists.

Australian registered veterinary specialists undergo a rigorous training and examination process to obtain their qualifications, and lso are to be well respected. We work closely alongside the specialists and together can offer optimum care for pets that require this service.

Specialists are independent veterinarians and set their own fees. It's a good idea to ask them about costs when you call to make an appointment.

Our sense of responsibility doesn't end just because you've taken your pet to a specialist. We are often involved in follow up checks, treatments & procedures as requested by the speciallist. If you find yourself faced with difficult decisions regarding the recommended treatment, please don't hesitate to call us. 

We’re happy to discuss and organise a specialist referral if required by your pet.
