Like humans, your pet, may at some point, require medical care and treatment which is outside the expertise of a general practitioner. People see their GP for advice and diagnosis of an illness, but sometimes the GP will refer us onwards to a specialist e.g. an NHS consultant who has more in-depth knowledge and experience of the condition.
It’s the same for our pets. Your trusted regular vet may suggest a referral for your pet in order to seek advanced treatment for an illness which is specific to a certain body part.
Here at Charter Vets we offer RCVS advanced practitioners offering referral level surgery and treatments at our Veterinary Hospital in Barnstaple.
