What is a Veterinary Specialist?
Most veterinarians are general practitioners. Some general practitioners have areas of special interest, but the American Veterinary Medical Association only recognizes specialists as those veterinarians who have completed advanced training through a Residency Program, and before they can use the term "Specialist", they must also pass rigorous examinations. Once they have completed all the requirements, the status of Diplomate can be listed after their names.
As veterinary medicine continues to advance, new treatments and procedures can improve the quality and extend the lives of our pets. While working in combination with your family veterinarian, our specialty hospital provides the advanced treatment, techniques, and equipment that are often not practical in general medicine.
If you have concerns about a serious or chronic health issue with your pet, talk to your family veterinarian. It may be time to see a specialist.
