What is a board certified veterinarian?

Veterinarians wishing to become board certified must complete a three-year residency program, meet specific training and caseload requirements, have completed and published research and pass a rigorous examination. This process is supervised by current board certified specialists, ensuring consistency in training and adherence to high standards.

When does a pet need a veterinary specialist?

Your pet's veterinarian may recommend referral to a veterinary specialist based on your pet's medical condition.

How do I schedule an appointment?

As a primary referral facility, our specialty practices see appointments by referral only. Please see the individual practices for hours of operation.  The Anne Arundel Veterinary Emergency Clinic in Annapolis is available for emergencies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with no appointment necessary. Please bring a copy of your pet's pertinent records and x-rays, as well as the referral form for all new appointments.
