Here are some of the common questions we receive at Fitzpatrick Referrals – if your question is not answered, please get in touch and we will be happy to help!

What areas does Fitzpatrick Referrals specialise in?

Fitzpatrick Referrals offers services to treat conditions within the areas of orthopaedics, neurology, rehabilitation and regenerative medicine.

Does Fitzpatrick Referrals treat or see animals with problems in other areas such as cardiology or ophthalmology?

We do not offer services other than what we have detailed on our website. We have clinicians that are specialists in the field of orthopaedics, neurology, rehabilitation and regenerative medicine in small animals and therefore are not suitably qualified to receive or treat companion animals that have other conditions outside our remit of expertise.
