The doctors and staff of Avondale Veterinary Healthcare Complex understand that there are certain conditions or special services needed to provide your patients with special medical options they may require to achieve maximum results or to correctly diagnose a problem to determine the proper course of treatment.  Avondale Veterinary Healthcare Complex offers a broad spectrum of specialty veterinary health care services to assist you with those cases that you feel need more comprehensive treatment than your clinic can provide.  Should you wish to discuss a particular case, our doctors will be happy to confer with you and your client regarding diagnostic procedures and treatment plans.  While Avondale Veterinary Healthcare Complex offers a wide variety of services for our referring veterinarians, this is only a partial list of what is available.  We always welcome inquiries as to what service(s) your pet owners need that we may be able to assist you with at Avondale!  Clients that are referred to us ALWAYS return to the referring veterinarian after treatment has been completed.  Additionally, the referring veterinarian is contacted during and after the pet’s care.  Dr. Dennis Woodruff  is a member of the American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians and Dr. Christie Carlo is a member in addition to serving as Secretary of American Association of Rehabilitation Veterinarians.
