Referral Services

Welcome to Macqueen Vets Referral Services

In addition to our general practice, we also offer additional services for other practices, providing expertise for complex and difficult cases across a variety of disciplines: orthopaedics, ophthalmology, cardiology & BOAS.

Ian has provided a respected and trusted independent orthopaedic referral service since 1990, and Ida joined us in 2003 to offer an ophthalmology service. We are now delighted to have welcomed Andrew who brings cardiology to the fields where we can help you.
