Now more than ever, it’s important to be there for each other – and our team is here for you. Whenever a case gets complicated, or you need care options beyond the expected, our specialists can help make a difference for your clients. We’ll always be a partner and a resource for you.
Veterinarians throughout our community and beyond are a vital part of our expert care team. UW Veterinary Care is proud to work with these doctors to develop the best possible care options and treatments for patients.
The staff at UWVC is dedicated to creating a seamless referral experience in which open communication is the key to great care.
Referrals to the Small Animal Hospital, while preferred are not required
Referrals to the Large Animal Hospital
You may call 608-263-6300 Monday-Friday, 8 am-5 pm, to reach the Large Animal Reception Desk staff. If you want to make a patient referral or have questions, the receptionist will forward your call to the clinician on the medicine or surgery service as appropriate. After 5:00 pm and all during the weekends, the emergency service calls to the Large Animal Hospital are forwarded to an answering service. This service will immediately contact the clinician on emergency call duty, and you will receive a call back shortly thereafter.
