What happens after the initial consult with the Specialist?

This depends very much on the Specialist’s advice and your decision. 

If further tests, treatment or surgery is going to be carried out, this usually means that your animal will be admitted. And if all goes well the animal will return to you or your own veterinary surgery at the earliest opportunity and your animal will go back under the care of your own veterinary surgeon. 

The Specialist will provide your veterinary surgeon with a full report on your animal.

In some cases, the Specialist will continue to provide advice to your veterinary surgeon after your animal has been discharged or may still be involved in ongoing treatment, depending on the nature of the initial problem and the facilities of your own veterinary surgeon.
