Some surgical procedures require more advanced surgical treatment only available at specialized hospitals and teaching facilities overseas. If your pet has the misfortune to require such treatment we have a good relationship with the Blue Pearl group found throughout the United States, with a strong professional referral relationship with their office in Miami.
It would be advisable to keep your pet’s Rabies vaccinations up to date, so that in case of a crisis your pet is ready to travel overseas for further treatment.
