Expectations of Us

Our board-certified specialists utilize advanced, state-of-the-art equipment and trained technical staff to deliver the highest quality care to your patients. Our specialists are always available to consult with you on any questions you may have about a case and we offer a variety of Lunch & Learn and Meet & Greet opportunities for you and your team.

When your patient is in our care, we keep you informed every step of the way on diagnoses, prognoses, and proposed treatment options. Once your patient has undergone a procedure at our hospital and is in recovery, we look to you to continue any needed follow-up care. Our hospital is specialty and emergency only; we do not offer any primary care services, such as routine vaccinations, general dental care, spays, neuters, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few common questions that you may have about our practice:

The relationship between a specialty veterinarian and a family veterinarian is important. Specialists are an extension of the family veterinarian, not a replacement. We take cases that are beyond the scope of the family vet to help your clients and patients, and then transfer care back to the family veterinarian. We encourage all of our clients to return to their family veterinarian after their pets have recovered under our care.

Please call our hospital at (303)-545-2273 to refer a patient to CASE.

If your patient requires overnight care after a specialty procedure, we automatically transfer that patient to our emergency team. Conversely, in the case of an emergency, a patient will be automatically referred to the appropriate specialty team for further care, if necessary. Our specialty and emergency teams work very closely to ensure a seamless quality of care for all patients.

After the initial consultation, if we need further medical history in order to help us make a diagnosis, we will call you for a consultation. Whether we call for further information or not, we send a letter to you with information regarding the diagnosis and proposed treatment of your patient. After your patient undergoes a procedure, we follow-up with you once more with a letter outlining how the procedure went and the recommended discharge instructions for a healthy recovery.

When an overnight emergency case comes to us, we may or may not recommend that the patient be transferred to our specialty team based on the prognosis. We will always confer with you on this decision and request written approval before doing so. Whether you would like to approve the request or transfer the patient to your care, you can contact us.
