Veterinary Referral Center of New Hampshire (VRCNH) - Veterinary Specialists PDF Print E-mail

ultrasoundThe Veterinary Referral Center of New Hampshire (VRCNH) is a comprehensive veterinary specialty facility and veterinary referral center located in Concord, New Hampshire and is affiliated with CAVES, our advanced veterinary emergency hospital, and our own facility here in New Hampshire's North Country, the Littleton Area Veterinary Emergency Service.

The Veterinary Referral Service of NH was created in response to specialized needs of some patients. There has been a tremendous advancement in diagnostic techniques and specialized therapies in veterinary medicine.

Veterinarians with advanced training allow your family veterinarian to offer these to you and your pet. At the Veterinary Referral Service of NH, each referral veterinarian has completed a rigorous academic program in his or her area of expertise, representing years of advanced study beyond the standard four-year veterinary college curriculum. Until recently, only human medical facilities or veterinary teaching hospitals provided many of the services offered by our staff. Because of the referral nature of our specialty practice, we work closely with your family veterinarian.

Board Certified Specialists

As in human medicine, veterinary medicine has become highly specialized. While it's true that a general practitioner is licensed to perform medicine and surgery, it does not mean that he/she has acquired formal post-graduate training (residency) and practices the most current advanced procedures. You and your pet deserve access to an opinion from a veterinarian who has not only "experience," but also formal training (residency), and board certification in the appropriate specialty for your pet's condition.

Specialties include:

  • Internal Medicine
  • Surgical including Endosurgery & Laparoscopy
  • Oncology
  • Cardiology
  • Critical and Intensive Care
  • Diagnostic Laboratory Services
  • Advanced Diagnostic Imaging including Digital Radiology and Ultrasound
  • Endoscopy
  • i-131 Radioactive Iodine Therapy

Specialty Care Can Save You Money

Sometimes, specialty care can actually save money. Advanced diagnostics can save pet owners money by pinpointing a problem quickly and early, enabling use of the most effective treatment. Without these diagnostics, veterinarians must guess at the problem and may have to re-treat the animal several times.
