At FVRC, our primary mission is to provide exceptional patient care with outstanding service to you and your family veterinarian. Our group of specialists, emergency doctors, and highly trained technical staff work closely together, around the clock, ensuring that each pet receives the care and attention needed to get them back to health as soon as possible!
Our Team Approach
As in human medicine, there are times when your pet may require input from more than one specialist. At FVRC, we believe in a team approach to veterinary care. Studies have shown that patients benefit when doctors utilize a collaborative or team approach to patient care. As a specialty referral center, our diverse group of doctors work closely with each other, as well as with pet owners and family veterinarians, helping to ensure the best and most comprehensive specialty and emergency medical care possible for your pet, all under one roof.
The benefits of collaborative medicine include:
- More rapid diagnosis and treatment of illnesses
- Shorter hospital stays
- Better management of chronic (long-term) diseases.
- Improved overall patient care
