What is a referral?
A referral is a recommendation from your regular veterinarian to seek further care. Your veterinarian completes and sends us a referral form which provides us with information about your pet's condition prior to your appointment. This form lists owner information and the pet section informs our staff of your pet's health history and why your pet needs to be seen.
Why do I need a referral?
We work hand in hand with your veterinarian to take care of your pet's health. The relationship that we have with community veterinarians is based on a referral system. If your regular veterinarian feels that your pet's health condition needs to be evaluated by a specialist they can refer you to us. Any findings/test results will be reported to your veterinarian on a daily basis. We will ask you to sign a waiver that states you will return to your veterinarian for the future care of your pet and that you will not seek to make us your primary veterinary office. This is to preserve the special relationship you and I both have with your veterinarian.
What if I do not have a regular veterinarian?
We do handle general health visits and provide wellness services only for new clients that have not been seen here on a referral basis.
All referred clients must understand that they are being referred to Peace Love Pets Veterinary Care for a specialty service and it is routine and customary that they will return you, the referring doctor, for continued care of their pet. Peace Love Pets Veterinary Care will not accept them as a client for general care while the pet is a patient of the referring doctor that has sent them.
