The aim of HVUTAD is to be a centre to which external Veterinary Doctors may refer cases. Although it has some limitations in terms of equipment, it does have good facilities and above all a highly qualified and motivated Medical-Veterinary team.
Any Veterinarian who wishes to do so may refer a sick animal to HVUTAD for the required procedures to be performed. Once entered into HVUTAD, the animal is under its responsibility until the moment of discharge. The referring veterinarian may, whenever possible, assist in the handling of the animal.
It is the norm for HVUTAD to assist referring Veterinarians as far as we can. This collaboration may take the form of clarifying doubts by telephone or in person about outpatient animals; giving second opinions about X-rays or other complementary tests.
It is important to point out that in all cases HVUTAD is bound to respect professional secrecy.
