Why does my pet need a veterinary specialist?
When your family veterinarian believes your pet’s illness would be better treated by a specialist, you and your pet may be referred to Northwest Veterinary Specialists. Because specialists are more likely to diagnose and treat patients with uncommon and complex illnesses, they may have more experience and expertise in your pet’s condition and often have access to special technologies and equipment.
Many medical and surgical conditions are complicated. Specialists use proven and often innovative techniques, high-tech equipment, and the latest pharmaceuticals and therapies to diagnose and treat your pet’s specific condition.
