Specialist Referrals

When an animal develops an unusual or more complex illness or injury, there is often a need for specialised expertise and equipment to properly diagnose and treat the problem. If your pet has a problem that requires this level of expertise we can refer you to a specialist that has earned our trust and confidence in order to give your pet the optimal chance of recovery.

Castlemaine Vet Clinic has a number of visiting specialists to our practice.  Speciality areas include (but are not limited to):

  • Orthopedics
  • Internal Medicine
  • Ophthalmology
  • Oncology

Australian registered veterinary specialists undergo a rigorous training and examination process to obtain their qualifications, and like human specialists are considered to be the epitome of knowledge in their field. We work closely alongside the specialists and together can offer optimal care for pets that require this service.


We’re happy to discuss and organise a specialist referral if required by your pet.
