Can I make an appointment for my own pet?
As we are a referral service, a referral can only be made to us by a primary care vet, who will be able to provide us with all the required medical history and relevant information. We are unable to take referrals directly from pet owners. As a vet-to-vet service, you can ask your primary care vet to contact us through our online referral form www.vvs.vet/refer-a-case/or by emailing us at [email protected] to discuss referral further.
What are the benefits of VVS?
Specialist input into your pet’s treatment can improve patient outcomes. Patients can receive specialist input into their care quickly, all in a familiar environment, with your own vet managing their care. This is more convenient for you, and importantly minimises any additional stress and travel for your pet.
My vet isn’t registered with VVS, can they still use your services?
Absolutely! Any vet is welcome to use our specialist advice services at any time, this might take the form of a video call over zoom, or a written report, depending on your vets’ preferences. These can be requested through our online referral form www.vvs.vet/refer-a-case/.
Our live-guided services, however, are facilitated through the VVS platform, which requires the installation of a VVS workstation into the veterinary practice. We are happy to be contacted by any practice with an interest in working with us so we can give them more information. Please ask your vet to email us on [email protected].
