Referral & Specialist Services

There will be times when we feel that it would be beneficial to get specialist advice about your pet or arrange a referral.

 

We have very good relationships with a number of referral centres, providing access to some of the top experts in the country, for either the newest treatment information or to arrange a referral appointment.

 

We also have referral consultants in orthopaedics, soft tissue surgery and cardiology, who can see your pet at Blue House so that you won't have to travel.

In house referrals

We are lucky to have three practices providing travelling referral services to Blue House.

Orthopaedics
