A deposit of approximately $450 will be required to cover these base fees. An estimate for further treatments and or services will be provided after the veterinarian evaluates the patient. All payments and or deposits are due at the time that services are rendered. Cash or credit/debit card are the only accepted forms of payment for after-hour/ holiday emergencies and their deposits. Credit/debit card transactions do incur a 3-5% processing fee directly from the processor.
We do offer All Pet Card, ScratchPay.com, and CareCredit for financial assistance/ payment plans. However, financial approval through these third-party options must be completed prior to calling our staff into the office.
Our on-call emergency veterinary assistants are not permitted to give medical advise. Instead, they will be asking specific questions needed to triage your pet's current health situation only. If your pet is triaged as life-threatening, the on-call emergency veterinary assistant(s) will call in the emergency veterinarian.
All patients seen on after-hours emergency will be required to be admitted to the hospital and hospitalized overnight.
If your pet has NOT been seen at our hospital by one of our veterinarians within the last 12 months or you have another routine veterinarian, we will be happy to see you on a case by case basis. Emergency fees are not discounted for non-established clients.
All pet owner's who do not wish to bring their pet in on an overnight after-hours emergency, are welcome to bring their pet in at 8am on the next business day to be worked into our daily schedule to be seen by a veterinarian.

We are AAHA accredited and our hospital is fully equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and equipment, a highly trained and experienced veterinary health care team, and an extraordinary passion for helping pets and their pet parents, especially during unexpected illnesses and injuries.
