A Message from the Medical Director, Alberto Fernandez, DVM, DACVECC

Dear Colleague,

Symbiosis is defined as a relationship with mutual benefits to two or more individuals. We hope that is an accurate description of the relationship between your practice and ours. We have two primary goals. The first is to provide you and your clients a 24/7 emergency and critical care resource where skilled and compassionate care is available for your patients when you are not on duty. Our second goal is to provide you with a nearby resource for specialist care. On this website, you will find a list of procedures we commonly perform listed by specialty services including surgery, imaging, and emergency and critical care. In addition, you will find information about our staff including Boarded Specialists.

We encourage you to call if you want to discuss a case or if you have any questions. We are grateful for your past referrals and your continued support. We are here when you need us. If you have suggestions or comments please contact me personally.


Alberto Fernandez, DVM, DACVECC, Medical Director
