New website showcases important role of Veterinary Specialists

Educational charity the British College of Veterinary Specialists (BCVSp) has launched a new website, www.yourvetspecialist.org to help inform and guide animal owners. The new resource explains what Veterinary Specialists are and how they may be able to help, whatever the species of animal.

A Veterinary Specialist is the equivalent of a Consultant in human medicine and is accessed in the same way, with the patient being referred via the primary vet.

There are more than 30 different types of Veterinary Specialist. They have all completed lengthy post graduate training programmes to gain qualifications in their chosen discipline at the highest professional level. Whether a small furry pet, a horse, a farm animal or an exotic there is a Veterinary Specialist out there who has the extra knowledge and experience to provide the animal with routine or emergency health care in times of need.

www.yourvetspecialist.org aims to make it easier for animal owners to understand and become confident with the process of referral and to search for a Specialist by location and by veterinary specialism They can also read some real life patient case studies following the referral, treatment journeys and outcomes of animals that have benefited from Specialist care and meet some of the Specialists via podcast links.

The new website fulfils the BCVSp’s primary aim of advancing the education of the public and the wellbeing of animals through the development, understanding and application of Veterinary Specialist care.

“While most happy healthy animals will never need Specialist veterinary care, if they do we want their owners to know that we are here to help,” said BCVSp Trustee Celia Marr. “There are many hundreds of Specialists working at the forefront of veterinary care and also those working in research, pathology and academia, helping to advance animal health and welfare, every day. We believe our new website should help to spread the word and make referral more understandable and accessible.”
