Required information for all referrals
Referring veterinarians should fill out an AEC Patient Referral Form, listing the medical problems, relevant treatments, and the reason for referral (ie, radioiodine treatment, thyroid imaging study, or clinical thyroid evaluation).
Please include relevant diagnostic/lab test results and medical record copies. Be sure to include all radiographs and ultrasound reports.
The referral form and medical record information can either be emailed or faxed to us.
For hyperthyroid cats being referred for radioiodine treatment, Dr. Peterson will review the cat’s medical records and will advise you, as primary veterinarian, about any additional testing that may be needed (e.g., repeat blood work, chest x-rays, ultrasound) before we see the cat for 131I treatment.
