In order to maintain our high standard of service, we require that payment be made at the time services are rendered. We provide estimates for all surgeries and hospitalizations. If you have not received an estimate, you are welcome to request one at any time for your expected charges. It is also important to look at the cost of your pet’s healthcare both for the immediate situation and lifelong care. We have found that those people with pet insurance are able to do more for their pet than those without and throughout the life of their pet. Please read more about Pet Insurance options here.
