Urgent update: As of Sept. 8, 2021, Please call before bringing animals or referring any cases to the hospital. We are extremely short staffed at this time, particularly in the ER, ICU and Internal Medicine.

Please use this form to submit a Orthopedics referral request.

This service is for veterinarians only – clients seeking medical information should contact their regular veterinarian for assistance.

If you would like to make a referral to one of the VH Services and you do not need to talk to a VH clinician, you can use this form to submit the client and patient information. Please indicate on the form if you have told the client to call the VH, or if you would like us to call them.

Please provide a summary of the history of the case so that we can be prepared to provide the patient with the appropriate care. Please email supporting information to the Orthopaedics Service email – ncstateorthopedics@ncsu.edu. You may also fax to 919-513-6715. Please send radiographs either by submitting directly through the online submission (see instructions on main information for Referring Veterinarians page), sending a link to the Orthopaedics Service email, or by attaching good quality jpeg images directly to an email. If you upload images directly, please let us know that this has been done. If these options are not possible, please send any images on a CD with the client. Continued limitations with the Veterinary Hospital limits our ability to perform elective surgeries.

We are triaging referrals as best we can, but some clients may not be contacted for a number of weeks for an appointment, and surgery may also be delayed.

If this is an EMERGENCY REFERRAL (i.e. needs to be seen within 24hrs), please call the appropriate service immediately after submitting the information below.
