Brighton Veterinary Referrals is the centre of choice for Sussex vets looking to refer their own patients for more Specialist investigations and care, locally. 

We have particular expertise in managing cardio-respiratory disease (heart and breathing problems), advanced imaging (CT and high level ultrasound) and laparoscopy (“keyhole surgery”).

In addition to our own in-house services, we coordinate further referrals in the areas of dermatology, ophthalmology and feline medicine via trusted visiting consultants.

We strive to make the referral process run as smoothly as possible, liaising closely with both the referring vet and pet owners to deliver a continuous service with ongoing care and support.

Referring Vets

We’re here to support you and your clients.


We’d encourage you to think of Brighton Veterinary Referrals as an extension of your own clinic. We can provide gold standard care locally with the added benefit of being able to manage ongoing hospitalisation if required.  This is a particular advantage for unstable cases.


If you would like to discuss a specific case with our referral clinicians please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Pet Owners

If you’ve been referred to us it’s because your vet recommends that your pet would benefit from more specialist investigations. Rest assured the specialists and consultants helping you and your pet are the best in Sussex and we know it’s important for this process to be as smooth as possible.


Veterinary Specialist status is the highest qualification available and only held by a very limited number of vets. Specialist status requires advanced training and qualifications typically gained over 4 – 5 years of post graduate study. Specialists concentrate in one area and are required to have research and teaching experience and prove on-going expertise. Our visiting consultants are also recognised to have particular skills and experience in their fields.


We understand consistency is key to providing the best possible experience for you and your pet and effective communication is vital for your peace of mind. Once your vet has made the referral, our friendly reception team will be in touch to arrange an appointment and advise you of any preparation required. We’ll liaise with you and your vet to explain the findings of any investigations, make recommendations and provide any ongoing care and support you need.
