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

Thank you so much for helping and I’m so grateful to all of you for taking such good care of Darwin and sorting out the insurance paperwork – it takes a huge burden off me as I’ve been so worried about her whilst she’s been poorly.  I think you’re all doing an amazing job – thank you.

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.

Please pass on my gratitude to the entire staff there who have helped make a really traumatic time as smooth and hassle-free as possible. Everyone there was exemplary in their conduct and manner – you are all a credit to the business.

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for looking after Sid when he needed spinal surgery in September.  He is doing amazing and is no longer in pain thanks to you all…thank you so much.

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.
