Small Animal Referral

Just as in human medicine, sometimes dogs and cats need to a see a specialist. Specialists have attended an extra four years of schooling after veterinary school and have passed board examinations.

We are very fortunate to have one of the best referral practices in the country only an hour away in Greenville. Upstate Veterinary Specialists has internal medicine specialists, oncologists, surgery specialists, a dental specialist, and ophthalmologist. If your pet ever needs to see a specialist, we will call in the referral and then you can set up an appointment.

We also refer patients to the University of Georgia Veterinary School in Athens, GA. They have an excellent staff of specialists, including a few specialties not available at Upstate Veterinary Specialists. For instance, a behavior specialist and several exotic animal specialists are available there.
