Specialist Referrals

Specialist Referrals

Part of our commitment to you & your pets, is to know & be honest about when to refer to another veterinary specialist centre for a more extensive level of care. When an animal develops an unusual or more complex illness or injury, there is often a need for specialised expertise and equipment to properly diagnose and treat the problem. If needed, 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. For us this is Veterinary Specialist Services in QLD for dogs & cats and Brisbane Bird & Exotics for those with feathers & rodent teeth.

Australian registered veterinary specialists undergo a rigorous training and examination process to obtain their qualifications, and like human specialists are considered to be the epitome of knowledge in their field. We work closely alongside the specialists and together can offer optimal care for pets that require this service.

Specialist veterinarians are independent from our clinic 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. If you find yourself faced with difficult decisions regarding the recommended treatment, please don't hesitate to call us. We'll be pleased to help you evaluate your options.

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