Communication between referring/primary practice and the emergency/referral practice is key to continuity of care. The better job we do of sharing information, the more efficient and effective care we can both deliver to our patients.
Please, share your outside laboratory access information! Sometimes it happens - you see a sick pet in the afternoon, and submit a specimen to Idexx or Antech, with plans to review the results the next morning. And most of the time, that's what happens. But what if that pet takes a turn for the worse, and has to see us that night, or over that weekend? That diagnostic information may be critical, and we will have to run the bloodwork in-house if we do not have access to your results - this is an added expense for your client, money that may have been more efficiently spent on treatment.
