Fees and Payment
An emergency examination fee is applied to all emergency visits. The costs of any additional testing and treatments cannot be known prior to examination. Once the veterinarian assesses your pet, you will be informed about your pet’s treatment options, plans and estimated costs, to the fullest extent possible. Please share your questions and concerns regarding costs with veterinarian or technician before treatment begins. It is important that your emergency medical team clearly understands your wishes before any course of treatment is undertaken.
Full payment for the visit is due when your pet is discharged. Cash, debit cards, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover are accepted methods of payment.
