When Should My Pet See A SPECIALIST?

Many people ask, “should my pet see a specialist?”   There are many ways to tell if your pet might benefit from the expertise of a board-certified veterinarian.   Here are few:

  • Your pet’s disease is uncommon, complicated, or undiagnosed after standard testing.

  • You would like an informed, neutral, second opinion of your pet’s condition.

  • Your pet is not responding as well as expected to treatment.

  • Your pet requires a sophisticated procedure or advanced care.

  • Your pet can benefit from hospitalization with 24-hour monitoring and care.

If you believe your dog or cat will benefit from a visit to our specialty hospital, we encourage you to work with your family veterinarian to complete a referral.  Questions?  Call us at 719-272-4004.
