Working with Us


The goal of our specialty hospital for cats and dogs is to provide veterinarians the opportunity to incorporate the expertise of veterinary specialists, advanced diagnostics, and state-of-the-art equipment as an extension of their general practices. Dogs and Cats Veterinary Referral & Emergency offers specialized pet healthcare that aims to maintain a close working relationship with referring veterinarians throughout the diagnosis and treatment of referred patients.

In addition, we keep the primary care veterinarian apprised of changes in a patient's condition and treatment plan following an appointment, as well as throughout the course of hospitalization. Our specialists and emergency veterinarians in Bowie, MD will provide clinical update letters following the admission of the patient to our hospital and will provide a full summary of any visit via email or fax following discharge. Our veterinarians and veterinary specialists are always willing to discuss your patient's care over the phone before, during, or after their visit.

In order to make the referral process as seamless as possible, please fill out a referral form for your patient, and provide all pertinent medical history, diagnostic test results, and images to our hospital prior to your patient's scheduled appointment. If you need assistance with the submission of records, please contact our Client Service Representatives at (301) 809-8800.
