Veterinary specialists work with your veterinarian as an extended part of your pet's health care team. If necessary, your veterinarian may refer you to a veterinary specialist for:
- Advanced diagnostics
- Treatments for special health concerns
Specialists complete years of advanced training in specific areas of expertise beyond the veterinary degree, and veterinary specialty boards grant specialty status upon successful completion of both advanced training and specialty testing. With specialists on your team, your puppy's health is in very good hands.
