Welcome to Oakwood Veterinary Referrals

Oakwood Veterinary Referrals was set up in 1999 at the Willows Veterinary Hospital with the aim of providing the highest standards of specialist care to patients and clients. Over the last 10 years it has expanded into a multidisciplinary referral practice. We now offer referrals with either Diploma or Certificate Holders in Soft Tissue Surgery, Orthopaedic Surgery, Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Dermatology. All surgical referrals are managed by our European Recognised Specialists in Small Animal Surgery who have over 30 years combined experience in managing referral cases.

Oakwood is based in Hartford near Northwich in Cheshire with easy access from the M6. We operate from a purpose built Tier 3 Hospital approved by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons. We have a dedicated imaging suite; in addition to digital radiography we offer fluoroscopy, colour flow Doppler ultrasound and endoscopy. We have  regular MRI and CT  mobile visits. Emergency MRI or CT visits are often possible to arrange. We have separate dedicated Orthopaedic and Soft Tissue Surgery operating theatres. Our cat and dog kennels are separate.

Why Oakwood? We aim to provide a professional, personal and friendly service of the highest standard. Our goal is to maximise our patients’ return to a good quality of life with the minimum of suffering. We work alongside busy first opinion colleagues within our hospital which gives us a good appreciation of challenges facing the modern veterinary practitioner.

If you have not used our services before or recently, why not try us out next time you consider referring a case? We are always happy to discuss cases with referring veterinarians prior to referral and provide free verbal radiographic reporting.
