Referrals

At Southampton Pet Hospital, referrals are always welcome. We have multiple clinics that currently refer patients to us for a variety of services such as blood transfusions, bone plating, TTA knee surgery, ultrasonagraphy, TCI scoping, chemo treatments, gastropexy and more. Follow-up letters are sent to the referring clinic as soon as possible, and we do our best to involve them as much as possible in regards to pre-op work up and post-op care, if required.

Referral Policy:

  • We will communicate with referring clinic by phone/fax within 24 hours of seeing the patient.
  • If desired, referring clinic may provide as many services as possible (i.e.: pre-op bloodwork, post-op analgesics, etc.).
  • Continuity of care – patient will be sent back to the referring clinic for ongoing care and will not be offered any services that are not directly related to the original illness/surgery.
