A deposit of approximately 60% of the estimate is required before treatment is initiated.

Payment by cash, check, Discover, MasterCard, Visa or American Express is due upon termination of the office visit, completion of the ambulatory call or release of the patient from the hospital.  

Changes to your account may occur after you’ve departed the Veterinary Health Center due to our routine review of all medical records to ensure charges accurately reflect the visit. This routine review may result in a final invoice during the next billing cycle.
