Collaborating To Provide Top-Notch Care

If you are a veterinarian seeking a specific service, feel free to call and ask about our tailored treatment plans. Our veterinarians also enjoy consulting with you on your difficult cases. We understand that you are busy with regular appointments while seeing emergency cases and are happy to help you in any way possible.

To refer a patient to our hospital, please we encourage you to utilize our Patient Records and Referral Portal which allows you to:

  • View all of the medical records ever shared with you in one place

  • Set your notification preferences (get the email notifications you want)

  • View diagnostics results on your patients real-time (before the record is ever shared)

  • Transfer cases and share your medical record with us directly through the portal (you no longer need to email us anything!)
