Referral Policy

Patients treated at Garden State Veterinary Specialists must be referred by their veterinarian. The patient will only be treated for the condition for which they were referred. No routine procedures (i.e. vaccinations, prophylactic heartworm testing) are performed on any patients of the hospital.

Patients are accepted without emergency referral or appointment when their veterinarian is not available for emergency treatment.

Referral Communication

The referring veterinarian will be contacted by telephone within 24 hours of a consultation, appointment or any procedures which are performed at our facility on the referred patient. A written report will also be issued to the referring veterinarian within 48 hours.

Fee Policy
