According to AVMA, the total estimated number of specialists across all disciplines in the United States is ~11,500 and represents ~850 specialty/referral practices. Compare that with the roughly ~90,000 primary care veterinarians and ~26,000 general practices. Forming positive working partnerships is critical to veterinary medicine and the health and well-being of companion animals. Strong relationships between specialists and primary care practitioners boosts business and save lives.
