An appointment is made for the Specialist to see your animal. The location depends very much on each situation. Most Specialists work in Specialists’ facilities, others will visit you at home, on a farm etc.
During the initial consultation you will be asked a lot of questions and your animal will be examined. Based on all that information, the Specialist will discuss all the options, including pros and cons, with you and you then decide how you want to proceed. This may involve further tests, treatment or surgery and in those cases your animal is likely to be admitted. In some cases, it may be perfectly right to decide not to do anything or to take a ‘wait and see’ approach.
