Veterinary Referrals for Pets

Our veterinary team offers a range of services that are not only accessible to our community of pets, but also other furry friends who might be referred to our hospital. Regardless of how a pet might have found their way to us, we can guarantee they will receive our highest standard of care. If you’re a client who needs to be referred to another practice, we are connected with a network of expert veterinarians who will provide you with the same quality of healthcare we do.

What procedures do you accept referrals for?

There are a range of procedures we accept referrals for, from general surgeries to ultrasounds. When emailing or faxing our referral form, please include a brief summary of the case. We will follow-up with the client to make an appointment. If you have questions about our referral process, please contact us at (902) 865-6400. Procedures we accept referrals for include:

  • Upper Gastrointestinal Scope/Biopsies
  • Colonoscopy/Lower GI/Biopsies
  • Rhinoscopy
  • Vaginoscopy/Urethroscopy/Cystoscopy
  • Esophageal/Gastric Foreign Body Retrieval

    When might you make referrals?

    Though we are a full-service veterinary hospital, we have limitations in terms of our expertise. Depending on the case, we might refer your pet to a specialist who is better equipped to deal with their specific case.

    Dear Clients,

    We want to thank everyone for their patience in recent months. We have adhered, as strictly as we could, to the Public Health Directives throughout COVID and with this in mind, we are pleased to say that masks are no longer mandatory at our hospital. You may still see staff wearing masks when in close contact with clients. This is a purely personal choice. 

    Our doors are now open and you are welcome to accompany your pets into the clinic for their appointments.

    We require at least 48-72 hours for all medication refills as we are still experiencing delays with some items, but we will inform you of any backordered items.

    We can still receive your food orders via phone or email, however, we now have an online store that you can access directly from the front page of our website. Please check out the free shipping and autoship discounts available.

    Due to being short staffed at this time, we ask for your patience and kindness as we try to navigate through these busy times. We are doing the very best we can. If the phone is busy, please email or attempt to call again.


    Monday to Friday: 8:00 am – 6:00 pm
    Saturday & Sunday: Closed

    Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!

     - Your dedicated team at Sackville Animal Hospital
