South Devon Referrals (SDR) is pleased to work within Abbotskerswell Veterinary Centre because of it′s high level of facilities and experienced staff.

South Devon Referrals is a secondary referral centre (i.e. only see cases referred by other veterinarians http://www.rcvs.org.uk/advice-and-guidance/guide-to-professional-conducts-for-veterinary-surgeons/o-referrals/) offering services in:

It is necessary that that your primary care vet contacts us to give us consent to see you before we can make you an appointment. This is important because we liaise closely with your primary care vet for follow-up treatment, and it ensures that your pet’s case history is available so that there are no complications between treatments that may be given and any medication your pet may already be on.

South Devon Referrals accepts referrals for all clients on the same terms as we have always, irrespective of whether they are insured or not. We believe that referring vets should be able to refer cases on the basis of what they believe is best for their patient and client. Please see our statement for referring vets relating to RSA insurance.

To see the dates that the Cardiology specialists will be at South Devon Referrals, please follow the link to their page.
