Referral Form

We are not a full-service hospital. We do not hospitalize pets overnight. For patients that require post-operative hospitalization, Helping Hands will facilitate a transfer back to the primary/referring veterinarian or to the client's preferred emergency clinic.

Helping Hands does not have in-house radiology or ultrasound. All images and/or reports need to be sent prior to the procedure. 

Please visit our procedures list for prices and surgeries we perform on a daily basis.

A copy of the patient's medical records can be sent to or faxed to (804) 355-3009. A copy of any requested biopsy or stone analysis results will be faxed to you for follow-up care. If you are a veterinarian who would like to speak with one of our veterinarians, please reach out to our office by phone or email to discuss your patient's case. If it is an emergency, please indicate that in the phone call, voice message, or email subject line.

Our hospital is normally staffed Monday – Thursday 7:30am- 5:30pm. If you have a pet who requires an emergency procedure after hours or on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday we do have an emergency number you can call – (804) 420-2770. After-hours emergencies are performed on a case-by-case basis. You will find more information about after hours emergencies here.

We welcome calls from veterinarians with any questions. We look forward to helping your clients. If there is a surgery that is not listed on our website, please inquire. We do consider some procedures not listed on a case-by-case basis.

For surgeries, we simply require your medical notes stating what surgery the animal needs and why. These records can be faxed or emailed to us. Our fax number is 804-355-3009. Our email address is
