As in human medicine, we in the veterinary field have specialists and referral centers for our patients too. Our veterinarians, at Town and Country Animal Hospital, are well educated in all aspects of the veterinary field, which is an enormous task. For those occasions when our vets think a patient could benefit from specialized care, we rely on a number of different referral centers to help provide more detailed diagnostic work and treatment for our patients.
A collaboration like this ensures that your pet receives the ultimate care and the most up-to-date treatments. These hospitals are a crucial part of the veterinary field, without them we would not be able to provide the precise care required by very delicate or complex cases. If your pet is referred to one of these hospitals, we will continue to provide your pets regular veterinary care or aftercare as recommended by the specialist.
The veterinarians at our hospital regularly receive updates and full reports from these outside specialists to keep them informed of what is going on with your pet. Our doctors consult and brainstorm with the doctors from the referral centers to plan the most beneficial course of action.
Please schedule an examination with one of our veterinarians if you think your pet may need to see one of these highly recommended veterinary specialists and/or referral centers. You may click on the links next to the specialist or referral center to be taken to their website.
