Nashville Veterinary Specialists provides specialty services through referral only. Emergency care is available when your office is closed. Patients are not transferred from emergency services to a specialty service without first speaking to the client’s regular veterinarian. We do, however, allow direct transfers to specialty services if medically appropriate and requested by the referring veterinarian and the client. Nashville Veterinary Specialists emergency and critical care service also provides overnight and weekend care for transfer cases that need continual monitoring.
