Our unique services

We are continually setting new standards in cutting-edge surgical techniques and are committed to making the science behind what we do accessible to the veterinary profession by advancing veterinary education in an innovative, dynamic and thought provoking environment.

We offer accessible, cutting edge CPD covering all the latest techniques for veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses, with programmes designed and delivered by members of our world class team.

Fitzpatrick Referrals also sponsors fellowships, residencies and training scholarships globally to promote cross-pollination of ideas and give wider opportunities to those with an interest in advancing veterinary science.

As a reflection of our commitment to finding and sharing new and better ways of doing things, we have created an online Research Centre for veterinary professionals. We have published numerous papers and lectured internationally on subjects as diverse as joint disease, fractures, spinal disease and cancer treatment.

Everything we do is driven by our desire to provide the best level of care available in the world today, from our research to our training, to innovation and investment.  Fitzpatrick Referrals is committed to delivering a service which is second to none for veterinary practices and their clients.
