Second Opinions and Referrals

We are happy to see second opinions from other veterinary practices. However, it is professional etiquette that we contact your previous vet for the clinical history up to that point. For this reason we will ask for your vet’s details so that we may obtain relevant notes prior to our first examination. There is an additional charge on top of the normal consult fee for organising second opinion consultations.

Within the practice we have dedicated small animal vets with interests in certain areas, such as orthopaedics and cardiology, so we are often able to work as a team, giving you access to several areas of expertise, without additional cost.

We also make use of specialist referral centres when the case necessitates, providing the specialist vet with all the information they need about your pet.  We will also help you find your way to these centres, and to prepare your pet for the referral.
