Specialist Referrals


Certain illness or injury may require specialised expertise and advanced equipment for accurate diagnosis and optimal treatment. If your pet is facing a problem that requires this level of expertise our team will refer you to a trusted specialist, who has earned our confidence and demonstrated excellence in their field. We work closely alongside the specialists and together can offer optimum care for pets that require this service.
We understand that seeking treatment from a specialist can raise challenging decisions for pet owners. Rest assured, our responsibility and support continue, even when your pet is under the care of an external specialist.

We are delighted to provide convenient access to a team of specialist surgeons right here at Newtown Veterinary Clinic

  • Dr Wayne Fitzgerald for advanced dentistry (root canals, bridging plates etc)
  • Dr Adrian Wallace for orthopaedic and advanced soft tissue surgery requirements
  • Dr Harold Pook for advanced ultrasonography and scoping 
  • Dr Clint Yuldman for internal medicine and specialist treatment

Newtown Veterinary Clinic also works closely with Advanced Vet Care, Geelong Animal Referral Services and Geelong Animal Emergency centre.

If you find yourself facing difficult choices regarding the recommended treatment, we encourage you to reach out to us. We are here to provide guidance and assistance in evaluating your options, ensuring that you make informed decisions that align with your pet’s well-being.
