Do I need to schedule an appointment?

What forms of payment do you accept?

Payment for outpatient services is due at the time the services are provided. We accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard, Discover, VISA, American Express, Debit, Scratchpay or CareCredit. The balance of your account is due at the time your pet is discharged from the hospital. If during your pet’s stay you and your veterinarian agree that additional care is needed beyond what was anticipated at the time of the original estimate, you may be asked to make an additional deposit toward your final bill. See Payment Options.

What is CareCredit?

CareCredit is a healthcare credit card with a credit line for treatments and procedures for your entire family, including your pets. With many of our promotional offers, you can avoid paying interest by making your minimum monthly payments and paying the full amount due by the end of the promotional period. Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the promotional purchase is not paid in full within the promotional period. Minimum monthly payments are required. For complete details, please read the Credit Card Account Agreement within the application.

What is the pre-anesthetic blood screening?

A pre-anesthetic wellness screen is a valuable tool used to ensure the internal health of your pet prior to performing procedures that require anesthesia. Many diseases can not be detected on a physical exam and without screening, these diseases would remain silent. Using our in-house laboratory we are able to analyze a blood sample for values that may indicate impairment in the function of your pet’s liver, kidney, or pancreas. We can also ensure there is no infection, anemia or electrolyte imbalance. If a problem is identified, we have likely caught it early and can make appropriate treatment recommendations at a point when treatment will make the most difference. In some cases, anesthesia may need to be altered or delayed for the safety of your pet.
