Bills for veterinary services
Hospital policy is that all bills must be settled at the time of treatment and before leaving the Hospital.
Estimates will be given for all medical and surgical procedures at the time of admission. Estimates will usually be written on the consent form you will be asked to sign. Please note that fees can only be estimated and no firm quotes can be given, we will however, wherever possible keep you informed of any necessary changes in costs.
Financial assistance and advice
We encourage pet insurance as an effective way to take care of your pet. These days a huge number of companies sell pet insurance including the big on-line names and the supermarkets. Although we cannot recommend or advise on specific insurance policies we would recommend that clients consider the following questions when taking out pet insurance:
In the event of an insurance claim we will help complete the veterinary sections of the claim form and liaise with the insurance company if there are queries related to your pet’s treatment.
If your pet is insured let us know at the start of its treatment and contact your insurance company for a claim form.
