Referral consultations are strictly by appointments only. Animal Practice referral service is headed by Dr Kevin Polglaze. Our team are trained to manage complex and intensive medical cases.
A referral is the transfer of care for a patient from one clinician/ clinic to another by request. Request can be made by the client or by their current attending veterinarian.
We usually require the medical history of the patient before their appointment. This can be done prior to the visit by the client requesting their current attending veterinarian to send us the patients’ medical history, any test results or imaging that has already been done.
This will aid our team to be better prepared for the case visit and reduce our client’s waiting time and money spent in repeating unnecessary medical trials and tests.
