For Referring Veterinarians

Compassionate Care, Clinical Excellence and Pro-Active Communication

90% of referring veterinarians rate VSEC’s quality of medicine as 9 or 10 (out
of 10, Calpro survey 6/1/15), so you can be confident that VSEC’s commitment
to excellence, compassion and communication will lead to the best possible
experience for your practice, beloved patients and pet-parents.

The doctors and staff at VSEC are pet-parents too! Not only dedicated to clinical excellence, VSEC strives to make clients feel that we not only have their clinical needs met, but support them throughout the entire process as we would members of our own families. Our staff and doctors take the time to answer all questions thoroughly and compassionately, and will provide daily status updates to make sure you and your clients are kept informed.
