Although the UTCVM clinician/surgeon and referring veterinarian may have previously discussed a case prior to the animal being seen at the hospital, it is necessary and in the patient’s best interest that pertinent case history, recent test results, and surgery and medication information be provided at least 48 hours before the appointment along with the completed referral form. The person that discusses the case with the referring veterinarian prior to the patient’s arrival is not always the same person to admit and treat the patient.
Food Animal, Equine and Field Services do not require a referral. If a patient is being referred, please complete the appropriate referral form: Referral Forms
Cardiology, Dermatology, and Ophthalmology referrals must go through the Large Animal Client Services for an appointment.
