How much will my visit cost?
If you’re looking for the cheapest vet in town, we’re not it. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality care for your pet.
Why does my pet needs an exam to get vaccinations?
Do I need an appointment?
Do you accept pet insurance? How does it work?
We are big fans of Trupanion Express
What do you charge for spays, neuters, and dentals?
We do not publish our spay and neuter prices. The price varies depending on your pet’s age and size, anesthetic needs, preanesthetic labwork, etc. Once we meet you and your pet, we are happy to provide a written detailed treatment plan.
What are my options for payment? Do you have any payment plans?
Payment is due at the time of service. If you’d like to make payments we recommend doing so through CareCredit or Scratchpay. CareCredit offers deferred-interest payment options for up to 12 months. You can see if you qualify for CareCredit or Scratchpay.
My pet is stressed coming to the vet. How can I make it easier?
Your pet can sense your stress about his/her visit. We try to make the environment here feel as calm and relaxed as possible. You’ll find soothing music in the exam rooms, fuzzy blankets for cats, lots of treats, and gentle handling of your pet for exams. If you know ahead of time that your pet will be stressed, please call us to talk about it prior to the exam. There are medications available to administer to your pet at home prior to your visit to help him feel less nervous while he’s here.
We also recommend stopping by for “happy visits.” During these visits, you drop in with your pet to get some treats and pets, and then you’re on your way. Hopefully, these visits will help your pet know there’s nothing to fear at the vet’s office.
To learn more about low-stress visits, you can visit our fear free page or Fear Free Happy Homes.
*We still provide all of these same low-stress options during COVID while doing curbside.
Can I buy my pet’s medications cheaper online?
Of course! Please visit our online pharmacy here. This provides the convenience of quick online orders sent to your home.
