Pet Health & Safety
As an AAHA accredited practice, we adhere to all of the American Animal Hospital Association safety standards for our patients, staff and clients.
Our fees are set in accordance with the level of service and professionalism that we provide for clients and patients. Fees are due and payable upon presentation. For your convenience we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Care Credit. Although we will provide you with a written treatment plan, it is just that: an estimate of what our experience tells us it will cost to provide the services you have agreed that we perform. In cases where an emergency situation presents itself we will provide the level of care that you have indicated you wish us to provide. This may incur additional charges. We will endeavor to contact you as soon as possible to determine your wishes.
We do offer financing with "Care Credit" which can assist clients in difficult circumstances to extend payments up to 6 months without interest on approved credit rating. See our tab on "Financing" for more information.
