What are my payment options?

We request that you pay in full for your pet’s care when services are performed. Many times you can plan in advance for pet medical care; we offer different options for routine visits and for when unexpected medical expenses occur.

Prior to any emergency treatment we will discuss your pet’s condition, treatment plan, and provide a fee estimate. You will need to make a 50% down payment before treatment can begin. Your remaining balance is due at discharge. We accept:

With the increasing costs of medicine and medical care, pet health insurance is increasingly common for both comprehensive services and accident and illness. You will pay our practice but we provide detailed billing information you can submit to your carrier.

Many companies provide insurance and there are many types of policies; we recommend Embrace Pet Insurance because of their coverage options and simple claim process. But we do recommend you research online to make the informed decision that’s best for your family.
