The veterinary surgeons in the practice recognise that in some instances a case may be outside of their area of expertise, and will therefore refer it to a colleague who they are satisfied has additional skills and qualifications to carry out the investigation or treatment involved.

We are fortunate to live in central Scotland within the proximity of several centres of veterinary excellence. We have easily accessible specialists for advice and referral. The most common conditions for which we have to refer are; orthopaedics, neurology, internal medicine and oncology. We are also able to arrange pain management and behaviour referrals.

The veterinary surgeon involved with your case will discuss the options of referral and the estimated costs involved.
