For Veterinarians

We know that entrusting your patients to another doctor is a serious responsibility. At Veterinary Referral Associates, we want you to know that your referred patients will receive only the best care from us. You always can count on us to be your partners in health care. We have a full range of services and specialists to meet the needs presented by even your most challenging cases. Feel free to contact us for a tour of our facility and to meet some of our staff.

To have your patient evaluated by one of our veterinary team members, please ask your client (your patient’s guardian) to contact our administrative staff at 301-926-3300 and schedule an appointment with one of our doctors. In order to help our veterinary staff accurately assess your patient’s current health status, we ask that prior to referral you please complete our Referral Form and send it to our hospital via email to or fax at 301-977-1308. Pertinent medical records may also be sent with the referral form. If you need assistance, have questions or wish to discuss your patient’s case prior to referral, please call our hospital and a member of our staff will be happy to assist you.
