A veterinary specialist is a veterinarian who has completed additional study and training in a specific area of veterinary medicine. They have also passed an examination that evaluates their knowledge and skills in that specialty area. Veterinarians can be specialists in behavior, ophthalmology, internal medicine, surgery, dentistry, dermatology, oncology and many other areas.
The specialist’s expertise complements that of your family veterinarian. You may be referred to a veterinary specialist if diagnosing or treating your pet’s health problem requires specialized equipment and/or expertise beyond what your primary care veterinarian can provide.
