For Referring Veterinarians
Same day emergency and surgery spots are reserved each day that we are open, and held Mondays for weekend cases. We continually watch our incoming urgent referrals however you are welcome to call and confirm your patient will be examined the same day.
If a patient of your clinic has an eye concern and you are unable to fit them in, we are happy to see them as an urgent referral. All you need to do is have a team member fill out the referral form and we will take care of your patient from there.
Our non-urgent wait time is one week. Our non-urgent surgery wait time is 1-2 weeks.
Thank you for trusting us with your patient's care. I sincerely appreciate our partnership, and I look forward to seeing each case through with you.
