Yes. One of our obligations as a referral practice is to remain in close communication with your family veterinarian. We recognize that you may have a long and trusting relationship with your family veterinarian and that she or he may provide essential insight into the medical management of your pet’s condition.
The American Animal Hospital Association has established guidelines that referral practices should follow including:
Educating both the client and the referring veterinarian about the case.
Providing verbal or written daily updates to the referring veterinarian.
Providing a summary of findings, including therapeutic and follow-up plans.
Providing additional services only if these are in the best interest of the patient or requested by the client.
Our goal is to work closely with your family veterinarian as a team of professionals overseeing the care of your pet. Our mutual goal is to help your pet make a speedy recovery.
