Specialist Referrals

When an animal develops an unusual illness or injury, there is sometimes a need for specialised expertise and equipment to diagnose and treat the problem. If your pet has a problem that requires this level of expertise, and we cannot provide this service or do not have the equipment to do so,  we can refer you to a specialist that has earned our trust and confidence in order to give your pet the optimal chance of recovery.

We have a simple and easy referral process so that you and your pet receive the very best veterinary care locally and in a timely fashion.

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 you've taken your pet to a specialist. 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.

In the unlikely event that our team of veterinary surgeons can't deal with your problem, then we’re happy to discuss and organise a specialist referral Ph 06 3503950 or e mail us on centralvetsandpets@gmail.com and one of our team will be in touch.
