Veterinary Specialist Referrals

The majority of your pet’s health needs will be met at our practice; however, there are circumstances where a veterinary specialist may be required. Under these circumstances, we may direct you and your pet to a specialist who is a veterinarian with advanced knowledge in a particular area of veterinary medicine or surgery. In some cases, specialized equipment is required to perform procedures that are not routinely performed by general veterinary practitioners. We are fortunate to have access to telemedicine, so your pet can have an anaesthesiologist specialist sitting alongside throughout their procedure.

When we do utilize the services of one of the area specialists, we will continue to provide great care from our support team following the procedures. Additional specialists are available intermittently in the Capital Regional District or regularly on the lower mainland of BC.

A short list of veterinary specialties include:

  • radiologist
  • anaesthesiologist
  • cardiologist
  • ophthalmologist
  • oncologist
  • surgeon
  • dentist
  • dermatologist
