At Fraser Valley Animal Hospital, we have an experienced team of veterinarians and technicians who provide a wide range of services, from routine checkups to advanced surgeries. In some cases, our veterinarians refer some patients to specialists or specialty clinics when advanced training or equipment would benefit the pet. Please feel free to call us at 604-854-2313 for more information.
Who would the veterinarian refer me to?
Based on the severity of your pet’s condition, we can refer you to veterinary specialists such as oncologists, ophthalmologists, and neurologists who have extensive knowledge in specific areas of concern in veterinary medicine. In some cases, we can refer you to specialty clinics and university-affiliated referral centres that have access to specialized equipment to perform advanced procedures.
How is the referral decision made?
We make referral decisions because we want to ensure our patients receive a high standard of care and the best possible outcome. When we refer a patient to another hospital, we stay involved with their care, consulting with the treating specialist and often providing any needed follow-up care and rehabilitation.
