The team at Riverview Animal Health Centre is happy to provide support with day emergencies, overnight care to your patients, and surgical services.

We understand you want your patients to be in the best care. Our goal as an emergency hospital is to provide your clients with a 24-hour option. As you are their primary veterinarian, we ensure you are kept up-to-date with any treatment or care given. We value your trust and are committed to providing the same level of care as your client and patient are used to at your own practice. With clear communication between veterinarians, our referral program is designed for our hospitals to work together in the best interest of your patient.

When referring your patient to our hospital for an emergency or specialized appointment, please review our Emergency Referral Policy and complete the Patient Referral Submission Form below. Also, please ensure that you submit all pertinent medical records and contact the doctor who will be managing the case at Riverview Animal Health Centre to ensure continuity of care.
