As a primary care veterinarian, you know your patients’ healthcare needs better than anyone. Sometimes those needs require that you utilize an extension of your practice—the veterinary specialist. By collaborating together, the primary care veterinarian and the veterinary specialist can provide the widest range of diagnostics and treatment options available for overall excellent patient care.

The Veterinary Specialty Center of Tucson considers its clientele to be both the pet owner and their referring veterinarians. Good communication and cooperation with the referring veterinarian is essential to VSCT’s goal of offering the best patient care and customer service possible.

We look forward to fostering a healthy partnership with you and your staff and share your goal of providing your patients with the best quality of life. Please complete our Referral Form when referring your patients to our practice.
