Referral Services

Family pets may be referred by your general practice veterinarian to AREC specialist or referral veterinarians to diagnose or manage difficult conditions

We work with your family veterinarian to provide the best possible health care available. Referral to a specialist demonstrates that your family veterinarian is committed to providing you with all the options available to care for your pet. Reports are sent to your family veterinarian to ensure ongoing continuity of care.
