What is a Veterinary Specialist?
Currently, there are 40 distinct veterinary specialties that range from anesthesiology to zoo medicine. You and your pet may be referred to a veterinary specialist if diagnosing or treating your pet’s health problem requires specialized equipment and/or intensive medical care. The specialist’s expertise compliments that of your veterinarian and it is critical that you, your veterinarian and the veterinary specialist work together to provide the best care for your pet. Veterinary specialty practices are an extension of your primary doctor so they do not usually provide wellness care such as vaccinations, spays/neuters, etc.
Specialties currently offered at Animal Specialty Center include Cardiology, Internal Medicine, Neurology, Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Surgery and Surgical Oncology. To learn more about individual specialties or find a specialist in your area please visit vetspecialists.com.
Animal Specialty Center is equipped with a fully stocked in-house dispensary to ensure that our patients can be treated quickly and efficiently. In most cases, you will be able to leave with your pet’s medications after their visit. This includes short-term medications while recovering from an illness or surgery and long-term medications for chronic medical conditions.
If your pet is an existing patient you can call to request a prescription refill. We ask that you give us 24-hours notice to ensure proper filling of the medication. Please allow extra time for the staff when picking up prescriptions during emergency hours (weeknights, weekends and holidays).
