Specialist Referrals


Decorative Bone Divider


Modern veterinary care has become more and more specialized, with advanced training, equipment and procedures available to provide our pets with 21st century care. We are fortunate in the Phoenix area to have a full range of veterinary specialists available for consultation. When appropriate, the doctor may advise or require referral to a specialist for your pet. Also available are 24-hour care multi-disciplinary facilities for complex or unusual cases, patients requiring advanced medical/diagnostic procedures, or those requiring 24 hour hospital and nursing care. Pet owners are encouraged at any time to discuss or request a referral for their pet, which we will be happy to help arrange.
