Ways to Manage Expenses|
We help you manage your costs in three main ways:
We will provide you with an treatment plan that includes an estimate of the cost of care for your pet to the fullest possible extent. Often, because of the unpredictable nature of some conditions, the course of treatment and outcome, along with costs, cannot be fully predicted. Before treatment begins, the medical team will provide you with a recommended treatment plan and expense summary. Once you understand and agree to a plan, you will be asked to sign the estimate and make a deposit if required.
If the actual services needed exceed the treatment plan, we will make every effort to keep you informed of the additional care and cost during the treatment phase. In some cases, this may not be possible given the patient's condition and need of immediate care. Please share all of your questions and concerns regarding costs with your doctor or technician before treatment begins. It is important that your medical team have a clear understanding of your wishes before any course of treatment is undertaken.
Payment for services is expected at the time of discharge. A deposit will be required if your pet is hospitalized and for certain procedures and treatments.
