We will always do our best to get your pet seen by the specialist that your veterinarian recommends. In many cases our specialists are able to fit your pet into their schedule on the same day. However, when necessary we will recommend that you bring your pet in emergently and have your pet examined by our emergency veterinarians. Our emergency veterinarians work closely with the specialists and arrange for a consultation between the ER doctor and the specialist so that his or her recommendations guide the treatment plan and any diagnostic tests. Our ER doctor will update you and include all of the specialist's recommendations. If your pet is hospitalized he or she will most likely be transferred to the specialist's care. The fee for an emergency room examination and consult is $165 and the in-network consult fees range depending on the specialty service required.
