Making a Specialist Appointment

Pet Owners

Specialist appointments need to be organised by your GP Vet. If you are unsure how to organise this please call or email us for more information.

Referring veterinarians are welcome to use our online referral form or call the clinic to discuss cases before referring.


Emergency cases will be seen immediately and no appointment is needed. If possible call us to let us know you are coming so we may prepare.
