Like all other health professions, veterinary medicine has experienced dramatic advances in knowledge and expertise over the past 20 years. Veterinarians are now able to provide their patients access to the same health services physicians provide human patients. How do they do it? Most of us grew up in an era of veterinarian medicine characterized in book and television shows like All Creatures Great and Small. From these important roots, today’s veterinarians are discovering how modern medical advances can further enhance their ability to provide the best pet health care. Now there are simply so many medical advances that veterinary specializations has evolved.
How does your veterinary help your pet benefit from veterinary specialists? Perhaps the most common way is through offering referral to a veterinary specialty center. These centers connect the skills of board certified specialists and your local veterinarian. Your veterinarian is an important resource for information on specialists available in your area that may benefit your pet. Specialists provide state of the art expertise in cardiology, dermatology, holistic medicine, internal medicine, neurology, oncology (cancer treatment), ophthalmology, surgery, and a host of other veterinary specialists can further extend what they can offer their patients by offering coordinated consultations. Their diagnostic results and treatments are state of the art care in an optimal setting. The outcome for your pet can be literally life saving!
