Your primary care veterinarian is qualified to handle many of your pet’s health issues. Sometimes, however, a specialist’s expertise is needed. Just as your primary care doctor sometimes refers you to a specialist, your family veterinarian may refer your pet to a veterinary specialist. Specialty care is the practice of providing advanced services and procedures to diagnose, treat and manage a pet’s health issues. In addition to their veterinary degree, board certified specialists have completed a one year internship, a three year focused residency program and a board certifying exam. Our board certified specialists bring the highest level of training to their work. Our expertise in diagnosis and treatment of complex health conditions, combined with compassion and understanding, ensures your pet has access to the best care possible.
