There are several clinical veterinary specialists in Queensland. Specialists work mostly in large referral hospitals, therefore we are fortunate to have one specialist working in our group. If your patient has unique needs that require specialist approaches to diagnosis and treatment, we can organise a referral.
For patients of the Vetwell group, we may be able to arrange ambulance transport to the specialist centre if needed.
Veterinary specialists are analogous to medical specialists. They are veterinarians who have undertaken several years of advanced training and rigorous exams in a particular discipline. They usually work exclusively in that discipline and have a higher level of knowledge, skills and equipment specific to that discipline.
One of our staff is a Specialist Theriogenologist (like an obstetrician) so he is skilled in delivering Rhino babies and collecting sperm from Alligators (true story).
