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.
Please note: The above referrals must be made by the referring Veterinary Surgeon only. Submit a referral online We accept referrals in the following disciplines:
  • Nursing
  • Emergency and Critical Care
  • Veterinary Physiotherapy
  • Oncology
  • Neurology & Neurosurgery
  • Diagnostic Imaging

What our clients say

Can I take this opportunity to say thank you to your wonderful practice for looking after my Millie, you were very thorough and caring at all times and we are very grateful for all the hard work you do.

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.

Many thanks for your wonderful support and care for Rocco. He is doing wonderfully well since the surgery and his wounds are healing beautifully. We are delighted to see him back to his old puppy-like state…he must have been in so much pain prior to his operation. Thank you to you and your whole team working at NWVS and please keep up all your good work.

We just wanted to thank you for everything you did for Sox. It is a huge loss and will be forever missed.

We wanted to let Laura know that we appreciate very much everything she did for him and the level of care she gave him was second to none and for that we are grateful.  Please pass on our gratitude to all staff involved with Sox’s care.

Whilst Covid affected the way it had to be when euthanised, being outside on the grass and spending that last half hour with him out there was a special time and much better than been in a clinical room and made the whole horrible process feel less stressful. Obviously, we would preferred to not have gone through any of it, but thank you to everyone involved in his care and his last moments, we will never forget the care you gave him and us.

Take care Dawn, Dave & family

Excellent service from the front desk to the surgeons, so lovely, helpful, thoughtful and caring from start to finish.
