We’re here to help when you need us

At Northwest Veterinary Specialists, we’re proud to support the great work that vet professionals are doing day in, day out.

We’re here to help you when you and your patients need us and there are 3 ways you can refer a case to us. We do ask that you have as much information to hand as possible and a brief case history is required on the call to assess the clinical needs of your patient.


Sunday 12th February 2022

We’d love for you to attend our open day for the whole veterinary practice team on Sunday 12th February, 10am – 2pm.

How to make a referral:

Emergency Referrals

For emergency cases, please phone us on

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

All our referrals are offered the next available appointment (normally within 72hours), please complete our online referral form, or if you prefer you can download and fill in our PDF referral form.

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.
