Cornell University Veterinary Specialists 24 Hour Emergency and Critical Care

Referring Veterinarians

At CUVS, we consider primary care veterinarians to be our partners. No one knows your clients and patients better than you do. The best way to provide them with the best possible care is by working together - sharing information, opinions and concerns. At CUVS, ongoing communication with you is as important as our state-of-the-art resources. We invite your ongoing input, suggestions, and constructive criticism to help us better serve your patients and clients.

  • Our specialists are always available for consultation or referral.

  • Our Director of Clinical Operations, along with our Client Services Supervisor, serve as your dedicated referral services team.

  • Clinical liaisons expedite the specialty referral process.

  • For Emergency-Critical Care referrals, you can reach a doctor or technician 24 hours a day on our dedicated doctors’ hotline.

  • Fax or email? Our communications are tailored to your individual preference.

  • Our Partner Portal gives you 24/7 internet access to your patient’s medical records.
