Specialist Referral Network

It is uncommon, but if your pet has a problem that is beyond our diagnostic, therapeutic or surgical skills we have many excellent options for specialist referrals in the Twin Cities. These include three referral centers including the Veterinary Medical Center at the University of Minnesota, a number of experienced board certified surgeons who can come to PHPH to perform challenging surgical procedures, as well as veterinary ophthalmologists and dermatologists.

We appreciate the trust you place in us and promise to be advocates for you and your pet when making referrals. We maintain friendly relationships with the veterinarians in our referral network while insisting on proper communication, care and compassion for our clients and patients. If problems arise with a referral we have made, please let us know so we can discuss them with the specific doctor.
