Specialist Referrals

When a bird or animal develops an unusual illness or injury, there is often a need for specialised expertise and equipment to properly diagnose and treat the problem. Our clinic is a little unusual in that it offers specialist care for birds within the clinic as well as collaborating with other specialists if dogs, cats or other pets require this level of expertise. Sometimes there is an option for specialists to visit our clinic and treat your pet here.

Australian registered veterinary specialists undergo a rigorous training and examination process to obtain their qualifications, and like human specialists are considered to be the epitome of knowledge in their field. We work closely alongside specialists in different disciplines so that, together, we can offer optimum care for birds, dogs, cats and other pets.

Specialists are independent veterinarians and set their own fees. It’s a good idea to ask them about costs when you call to make an appointment.

Our sense of responsibility doesn’t end just because we’ve referred your pet to another specialist for care. If you find yourself faced with difficult decisions regarding the recommended treatment, please don’t hesitate to call us. We’ll be pleased to help you evaluate your options.

We’re happy to discuss and organise a specialist referral if required by your pet.
