Second Opinions

Not sure you agree with an assessment? Unclear about recommendations? Want further testing before you proceed with a procedure? Unsure what’s best for your pet or even what your options are? Whatever your reasoning, we are happy to provide a second opinion for you.

At Heritage Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves on educating our clients. After an examination, we will discuss possible causes, or in vet speak “rule outs” for the signs and symptoms you are seeing. We then discuss the variety of testing options available to help us rule in or out some of these so we can narrow the list down and hopefully find a diagnosis. We also discuss treatment options for the conditions we think it may be. This means you will understand our recommendations, your options, and we will reach an agreement together on the best plan for you and your pet.

Referrals

Sometimes pets require more intensive or specialized care than we at Heritage Animal Hospital are able to provide. In such cases, we will refer you to a specialty practice that may better be able to assist you. We will discuss options with you for treating at our clinic and options that are available elsewhere if we feel they are warranted, would be in your pet’s best interest, or just to inform you of your options. Together we can determine if a referral to a specialty clinic is right for your situation.
