Referral Policy

Your pet has been referred to Veterinary Specialists of Western New York by your veterinarian for medical diagnostic procedure and/or surgical treatment. We will complete these procedures and forward all pertinent information to your veterinarian.

In the event that your pet requires medical help in the future for a problem unrelated to what you were referred for, we ask that you call your veterinarian. The knowledge and familiarity with your pet makes your veterinarian best qualified to manage further conditions. We will treat only your pet’s referred problem to completion. Our commitment to the Western New York veterinary community will not allow us to accept this pet as a patient of our general practice.


By selecting yes, typing my name, and submitting this form, I agree to the terms outlined above regarding my pet's medical history, photo use, service payment, and referral terms.
