REFERRAL PRACTICE  (What is this?)

What is a general practice?

A general practice is where your primary care veterinarian works. This is a veterinary facility where you take your pets for preventive services, including vaccinations, wellness care, dental care, and common surgical procedures.

What is a referral practice?

A referral practice is one that your primary veterinarian will refer you to for more advanced and specific tests, procedures, surgeries, and/or second opinions. An AAHA-accredited referral practice is required to have board-certified veterinary specialists on staff. Board-certified specialists have graduated from veterinary school, completed several additional years in an internship and residency program, and have passed rigorous training and testing in specific areas, including surgery, internal medicine, cardiology, neurology, and so on.
