why it's necessary
Your family vet knows your animal.
Your primary veterinarian is familiar with your pet and has developed a trusted doctor-patient relationship with you. It's important that a vet that knows your animal's history helps you in your medical journey with your pet. Having two professional opinions is necessary when it comes to making big decisions, especially involving surgery.
It's more convenient for all.
Having surgery at your local veterinary hospital is much more convenient for a busy family than traveling to a specialty clinic for some elective outpatient surgeries. It's much more comfortable to be in a hospital you are familiar with when undergoing such a process.
