Do I need a referral?

Yes. In order to provide the excellence service in veterinary and patient care that we pride ourselves in, we have to work as a team with your regular veterinarian. They will need to email us a referral and up to date history on your pet before your appointment with our team.  After your pet’s consultation and/or treatment with us, we will work closely with them for further monitor and treat any ongoing problems. It is therefore very important that they be involved in the referral process, so that we are able to continue to work with them during your pet’s recovery.
