The Referral Relationship

The specialists and staff at the Fort Worth Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital strive to make each case referral beneficial and satisfying for referring veterinarians, clients and pets.

Patients needing specialist care should be a partnership between the referring veterinarian and specialist. With each and every case referral, we vow to furnish:

  • Prompt updates by phone, fax and/or email
  • Concise reports for your records
  • Each client referred directly back to you for follow up care
  • Friendly, caring staff so clients feel comfortable leaving pets in our care
  • Timely response to phone consult requests
  • Radiograph review consultation at no charge
  • Timely scheduling for appointments and surgery

Referring veterinarians can facilitate the referral process by providing:

  • A concise case summary instead of hand-written records or invoices
  • Applicable radiographs and laboratory results
  • Clients with a general cost estimate prior to referral

Please call to speak with a specialist if you have any questions.

Referring veterinarians with weekend or after hours surgical emergencies can call the emergency hospital at 817-263-2900 for the surgeon emergency on-call phone number.

By working together, specialists and referring veterinarians can provide the best in service to Fort Worth clients and their pets.
