About Our Referral Policy

It is a privilege for us to provide specialty referral services to the patients of general practice vets throughout our community! We are committed to giving your pet the best care possible, and communicating closely with your primary care veterinarian to ensure appropriate and consistent follow-up care.

Please note, Veterinary Healthcare Associates does not offer general healthcare services to pets seeing us by referral. We cannot accept referral patients as new general patients of our hospital, and we ask that for any general healthcare questions or concerns, you consult with your primary care veterinarian to determine the best course of action.

General services we cannot provide for your pet include:

  • Wellness examinations
  • Vaccinations
  • Dental cleanings
  • Sterilization surgery

If your pet is referred to us to be treated for a specific health problem, we will treat that problem to the best of our ability. If you later suspect a recurrence of the condition for which you referred your pet to VHA, please have your primary care veterinarian contact us with a new referral.

Thank you for your understanding, and please let us know if you have any questions by calling (863) 324-3340!
