What to Expect When Transferring Your Patient

We appreciate a phone call from the attending veterinarian prior to transferring your patient so our veterinarian can work with you to development the appropriate treatment plan designed to suit your patient’s and client’s needs.

Please send the following items with your client, if applicable:

  • Patient Referral form
