Emergency Referrals

Wellfarm Veterinary Consultants

Emergency medical situations are unpredictable are stressful – but they don’t have to be

It is imperative to have a professional veterinary client-patient relationship (VCPR) with a veterinarian prior to an emergency event so that the appropriate triage and referral can be made in your animal’s best interest.

Our Emergency Coverage: All Wellfarm Veterinary Consultants subscribing clients have emergency options so that you are not on your own when that adverse situation arises. Select and Prime subscribers receive emergency referrals, and Choice clients receive emergency farm calls and referrals. Non-plan clients pay a $50 fee for emergency referrals.

Why Do I Need An Emergency Referral?

Referrals are a common way for veterinarians to triage emergent conditions and refer to the appropriate professional that can best serve you and your animal at the time needed. If you do not have a current VCPR then emergency services cannot be guaranteed with any veterinary professional. Additionally, tertiary care referral hospitals require a referral to receive emergencies from non-clients. Through this network we can ensure that everyone’s time, resources, and health are given the most sensitive consideration.

Be Prepared For Veterinary Emergencies

Call 540-200-8092 for any animal health emergencies to get the soonest response from a veterinarian. Once we establish a VCPR, we can carry out telehealth visits, online prescription management, and emergency referrals for your animals to expedite veterinary care when you need it.
