Second Opinions

A second opinion is merely for confirmation of diagnosis and Elands Veterinary Clinic is happy to see second opinions.

If you would like a second opinion, please feel free to contact the surgery to discuss your requirements with us and to book an appointment. As Elands is also a referral practice, where appropriate the appointment may be booked with one of our specialists. More complicated cases and unusual diseases can be booked in to see our permanent vet Alice Courtney who has an additional Certificate in Advance Veterinary Medicine.

We will then contact your existing practice to request your pet’s clinical records. Not only is it a matter of professional courtesy to inform your practice that a second opinion has been requested, but it is also important and in your pet’s best interest that we are fully aware of all treatment your pet has already received.

After seeking a second opinion with us, you have the choice to return to your original practice or, if you would like us to continue with treatment, you are welcome to stay at Elands should you so wish.
