To allow ample time for all patients and scheduled surgical procedures, we operate primarily by appointment. Emergency cases shall always receive top priority, which is why occasional appointment delay is inevitable. Please realize that we make a sincere attempt to see each client on time.
We require an $40 booking fee when making an appointment with a Doctor. The fee will be applied to your visit, but all other services will be billed that day. We require 24 hours notice for cancellation. If you do not call, or the appointment is missed, the fee is non-refundable.
Surgeries booked with travelling surgeons require a $150 booking fee. The fee will be applied to the final bill, but all other services will be billed that day. We require 24 hours notice for cancellation. If you do not call, or the appointment is missed, the fee is non-refundable.
For your convenience, drop-off' appointments are available. A 'drop off' means you could bring your pet at the time that works best for you and leave him/her with us for a couple of hours. Usually we will ask you to drop off' sometime in the morning so our doctors can examine the patient in between appointments or at the time purposely reserved for admitted patients. Once the doctor is done, she will give you a call to go over the diagnosis and to give you discharge instructions.
For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet. We recommend that animals be placed on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room.
We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, cash and personal checks, and CARE Credit.
