Specialist Referrals

Specialist Referrals

Being a small practice, we acknowledge that some conditions are better treated elsewhere. We work with a variety of specialist and local practices to refer your pet for the very best medical care, if needs be. We can assist in booking these appointments.

An example of our referral partners:

VSS Jindalee and VSS Underwood – internal medicine specialist, with great staff and knowledge

Animal Eye Services Underwood – specialists in veterinary ophthalmology

UQ Vets Small Animal Hospital, Gatton Campus – internal, exotic and diagnostic specialists

 

Frequently Asked Questions

We are always happy to answer questions over the phone. Please give us a call if you need any advice or health care help.

If I see a Specialist, can I still come to you?

Yes, of course! We can accept stable transferred patients from Specialist and Emergency centres, and likewise you can always come to us for regular care, procedures or medications a Specialist has recommended.

When do you refer?

Our vets know their limits. If a patient is extremely compromised, presents when we would need to offer intense after-hours care, or has an illness or injury that we believe is too serious to treat without Specialist intervention – we will put you in touch with someone who can help where we aren’t able.
