Veterinary Referrals

We offer a comprehensive referral service where we see animals referred to us by other veterinary practices.

These are referred to our state of the art small animal hospital on Pride Park – Pride Veterinary Centre. We have a number of specialist referral vets who have undergone training to obtain further qualifications in different areas of veterinary medicine.

Veterinary Referrals at Pride Veterinary Centre

We have specialised equipment and facilities at Pride Veterinary Centre, which allow our vets to carry out tests and treatments that cannot be done at the patient’s own veterinary practice. For example, we have a sophisticated ultrasound scanning machine which allows us to make precise measurements of animals’ hearts and we have a full range of endoscopes which allow us to see inside animals’ lungs, guts, noses and even bladders.

In order to be referred, the your own vet must contact us to discuss the case and to decide how we can help. We cannot take referrals directly from a pet owner.
