Information for referring veterinarians 

How do I make a referral?

Please call the LSU small animal clinics at (225) 578-9600 to set up a referral. Referring veterinarians are very important to us. We communicate with referring veterinarians by phone, fax, and/or emails to give them updates. 

 

When a referral appointment is made, we ask your name, patient name, owner's name, signalment, and tumor type. Please fax the most recently performed diagnostic reports (blood work, chemistry panel, radiographs, cytology, and/or histopathology, etc.) to (225) 578-0616. 

 

You can also send the information via email at oncologyconsults@lsu.edu prior to the first referral appointment. 

 

How do I obtain a consult?

Consultations can be requested by calling (225) 578-9040 (this number is for veterinarians-only). Oncologists will be happy to return your call within 24 hours. If you have an emergency consultation, please notify the reception desk at (225) 578-9600.
