For Veterinarians

We appreciate working with our partner veterinarians. Please let us know how we can best help you. We are always available to take same day urgent referrals.

Each month, we will publish and distribute an informational newsletter called Pacific Tide, authored by one of our board certified veterinarians or intern studied emergency doctors on various topics related to their particular area of specialty. If you miss an issue, we will archive them here for your easy access. Feedback on this new feature offered to our referring veterinarians and partners in patient care is encouraged & much appreciated!
