The goal of our specialty and emergency hospital 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. DCVR aims to maintain a close working relationship with referring veterinarians throughout the diagnosis and treatment of referred patients, and to keep the primary care veterinarian apprised of changes in patient condition and treatment plan following any appointment, and throughout the course of hospitalization. Our specialists and emergency veterinarians will provide clinical update letters following admission of your patient to our hospital, and will provide a full summary of any visit via email or fax following patient discharge. Our veterinarians 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 submission of records, please contact our Client Service Representatives at 301-809-8800.
