Vet Professionals

COVID-19 update

At Northwest Veterinary Specialists, the health and wellbeing of our patients, colleagues and wider community is a number one priority. With this in mind, we are still committed to providing care to the pets and clients you refer to us. Find out more.


At Northwest Veterinary Specialists, we’re proud to support the great work that Vet Professionals up and down the country are doing day in day out.

We’re here to help you when required and would like to share with you the different classifications and ways you can refer a case to us. We do ask that you have as much information to hand as possible and would like to advise that a brief case history is required on the call to assess the clinical needs of your patient.

There are three ways to make a referral

Emergency Referrals

An initial assessment of the case will be made before asking you to send the case history via email; the email address to use is enquiries@nwspecialists.com. We aim to confirm an appointment booking within 10 minutes of your initial request.

Routine Referrals

As soon as we receive the referral information we will then contact the pet owner and arrange an appointment at their earliest convenience, so you do not need to act as an intermediary.

Need Case Advice?

Once we have the above back we will contact you at your preferred time to discuss the case.

What our clients say

Thank you for your ongoing support with my dog Gatsby, the reception staff and Krizia have been outstanding. Gatsby is recovering well, thanks to your excellent care.

Very professional and welcoming admin staff set the tone. Thorough and comprehensive consultation, well explained and inclusive. Modern well-appointed facility.

Once again, a huge thank you to you and your colleagues who’ve been so kind and supportive.  Sue gave me a big hug when I turned up to collect Paddy’s ashes.  It’s clearly more than just a job to you all, which we’ve found very touching.

Excellent from the very first visit. Wonderful, friendly reception and fantastic medics. Looked after my Dexter with loving care. Would recommend to anyone to take their fur babies here.

Lovely people took brilliant care of my dog Daisy
