Refer a case to the Emergency and Intensive Care Service (by phone only)

In order to prepare ourselves to take charge of the referred patient, we ask you to contact us as soon as possible at (450) 778-8111. We will then be able to discuss the case and organize the visit. In addition, during the discussion, we will be able to present you an initial estimate of the costs to be expected for your client, an estimate that could obviously vary depending on the evolution of the case.

When you contact us to refer an emergency case, it is possible to request a telephone follow-up. Do not hesitate to contact us at any time to obtain news.

With some exceptions (for example, if the case is referred to a specialised service), the case will be re-evaluated by the referring veterinarian following the animal’s discharge. A case report will be sent to you in the days following the patient’s visit to the CHUV.

Refer a case to the Surgery Service (by phone and then by online form)

Please contact us at (450) 778-8111 to talk directly to the admissions technician assigned to the Surgery Service. The non-urgent referral service is temporarily unavailable due to human resource constraints.

Refer a case to the Dermatology Service (by phone only)

Please contact us at (450) 778-8111.

When an appointment is scheduled, upon confirmation of the appointment, an email including a link to a questionnaire to be completed is sent to the owner. The purpose of this is to orient the students and better guide the dermatologists on the patient’s dermatological problems. The answers will help the dermatology team to better prepare for the meeting, and thus better respond to the needs of the client and their pet.

In addition, it is requested that a copy of the medical file be sent by email or by mail prior to the appointment.

For emergencies where the vaccination protocol is not up to date, the medical team will consider the possibility of an intranasal vaccination on a case by case basis.
