Why would your pet need a specialist?
Usually, your family veterinarian will recommend that your pet see a specialist. If you are concerned about your pet’s condition, however, you may request to see a specialist. We recommend that you discuss your options with your family veterinarian.
Pets require specialized care for many of the same reasons humans do. The pet may require intensive monitoring, an advanced surgery or treatment, or they may have been diagnosed with cancer, for example.
What is a veterinary specialist?
A veterinary specialist is a veterinarian who completes 3-4 years of additional training, usually in the form of an internship and residency programs, after graduating from veterinary school. Following the advanced training, credentials must be submitted to a specific veterinary specialty “college” such as the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM), or American College of Veterinary Surgeons (ACVS). After preliminary criteria have been met, the individual must pass a rigorous multi-day examination. After successfully passing the examination the veterinarian becomes a member or “diplomate” of that specialty group and is considered to be “board certified.”

"Thank you all so much for the amazing care you gave to Martini in her time of need. Martini is truly a member of the family and it made this such a difficult time for all of us. Everyone at the hospital was caring, patient, and supportive. I don't know if we would have made it through such a trying situation if we had been at any other hospital with any other people. It is clearly evident that you all LOVE your jobs and the animals you work with. You are all amazing, wonderful people. Martini and the rest of us thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"
