Refer a Patient
The Bailey Small Animal Teaching Hospital, the J.T. Vaughan Large Animal Teaching Hospital, the Auburn University Veterinary Clinic and the Auburn Veterinary Specialists — Gulf Shores, AL are committed to providing the best care available to patients coming for treatment. We strive to make the referrals process as quick and efficient as possible, placing the focus on the treatment and well-being of your clients and patients.
For the convenience of our referring veterinarians, the Bailey Small Animal Teaching Hospital offers online and over-the-phone options for submitting referrals. All referrals are with a Specialty Service, not with a specific clinician. Supporting medical history and patient records are required in order to ensure that our clinicians, technical staff, and veterinary students have the most up-to-date information regarding the referral. The faculty of the Bailey Small Animal Teaching Hospital emphasize that the basis for strong communication and a team approach to the patient’s care begins with the information you provide.
Referrals to the JT Vaughan Large Animal Teaching Hospital, by appointment or emergency admission, can be made by calling 334/844-4490. Referral for appointments can be made during regular business hours. The front office staff will gather a small amount of information in order to direct the call to the appropriate service and the call will be transferred to a clinician on duty. Referrals for after-hours emergency care can be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The after-hours student residents will gather a small amount of information before transferring your call to the resident veterinarian on duty.
