What is a Veterinary specialist?

Most conditions that develop in our pets are first evaluated by a primary care veterinarian

If an animal develops a disease or illness requiring advanced care and procedures, they may be referred to a Veterinary Specialist

Veterinary Specialists are veterinarians who have advanced training in various veterinary medical and surgical disciplines and are board certified

Veterinary Specialists work closely with pet owners and the primary care veterinarian to coordinate the best quality of care
