Veterinary Referrals

At Simcoe Animal Hospital, our experienced veterinarians are able to provide full spectrum of care for all of our patients. As a full-service practice, they can also perform various types of treatments and surgeries within our facilities. There may be times when they will recommend the opinion of their colleagues, such as those who are board-certified specialists, in order to treat more uncommon health conditions.

On the other hand, our doctors also accept patients referred to us from other practices and veterinarians. If you are a new member of the Simcoe Animal Hospital community, please do not hesitate to call us at 519.426.0111, and our team members will be happy to answer any of your questions. We will make sure that you have everything you need for your first appointment.

How can I get a referral for my pet to be seen by one of your doctors?

You will need a referral from your primary veterinarian. Then, your primary team will forward us your pet’s case and medical history prior to your scheduled appointment.
