ARRANGING A REFERRAL AT
MOORVIEW REFERRALS

We would like to welcome you to Moorview referral services and hope we can be of assistance in treating your pet. Our aim is to work closely with you and your referring veterinary surgeon and here are a few points to ensure that your referral is dealt with as smoothly as possible.

Your appointment date and time should be arranged by your own vet.

YOUR REFERRING VET

Usually your referring vet will have emailed or faxed a referral letter to Moorview. This will include x-rays with all the relevant information we need. However, on occasions, you may need to bring a letter or x-rays from your referring vet with you.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

It is ideal if the person who is most familiar with your pet’s condition attends the consultation.

PET ADMITTANCE

Although some referrals may only involve a consultation, it will usually involve further tests and we will often ask to keep your pet with us for further investigation. This will be discussed with you during your consultation.

FOOD & WATER

Please withhold food from 10pm the evening before your consultation. Water should be made available at all times. If your pet is diabetic please contact your vet with regard to feeding.

MEDICATION

It may be preferable in some cases to withhold some medication prior to referral however please do not stop any medicines until you have talked with your own vet.

INSURANCE

Please bring your insurance claim form and your policy details with you. For further clarity on our insurance procedures please see our Insurance section.

PAYMENT & COSTS

Fees are payable at the time of treatment for day cases and on the day of discharge for hospitalised patients. For further clarity on our payment procedures please see our T&Cs section by clicking here. The cost of investigation and treatment can be discussed at the time of the referral or during the consultation.

COMMUNICATION

Discussion of any surgical procedures will be with you and we will also speak directly with your own vet where appropriate.
