Canine Underwater Treadmill regularly accepts referrals from veterinary professionals. We are committed to helping patients while maintaining existing doctor-client-patient relationships.
If you are a veterinarian or other pet health practitioner and your patient may benefit from underwater treadmill therapy, we can work with you.
To refer a patient for treadmill services:
- Please call (937) 514-7702 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to discuss the case with the Underwater Treadmill practitioner prior to referral.
- Complete this referral form (PDF) and either fax to (937) 514-7782, or e-mail to email@example.com.
- Inform your client that they can call us at (937) 514-7702 at their convenience to schedule a consultation.
What you can expect from us:
- We will communicate with you regularly regarding your patient’s progress. Verbal reports will be provided upon request, and written reports for your patient records will be provided within 1-2 weeks of an appointment.
- We will respect your doctor-client-patient relationship by only providing the services for which the patient was referred, except in life-threatening emergencies or with your express permission.
What we expect from your client:
- Canine Underwater Treadmill is located inside Bigger Road Veterinary Center of Springboro, which is a full-service veterinary and pet care facility.
- To protect your doctor-client-patient relationship, we will ask your client to sign an agreement (Client Referral Agreement – PDF) acknowledging that we will only provide the specific services for which the referral was made.
- The agreement specifies that we will not provide primary care or any medical services normally performed by you, except in life-threatening emergencies or with your express permission. The client agrees to return to you for any services that you regularly perform.
- The client will pay us directly for any services we perform, with payment expected at time of service.
- We will allow referral clients to purchase ancillary (non-medical) products and services that your facility does not offer, if they are services that we normally provide to patients not receiving medical care from us. This includes grooming, day care, training, and over-the-counter pet supplies.
