Payment and Medical Insurance

Payment Policy

We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Debit, and cash. Unfortunately, personal cheques cannot be accepted.

We understand that you might not always be prepared to meet the financial obligations that present themselves when your companion becomes ill or gets injured. When these circumstances arise, we can assist with making arrangement for financing with Medi-Card Financing.  Medi-Card provides rapid turn-around approvals through an online financing application.  We will always provide accurate estimates for procedures and will never proceed with any treatment without your express approval of the treatment plan which will always include an easy to understand and comprehensive breakdown of costs.   Our pledge to you is that your final costs will be what you agreed to prior to the start of any procedure.

Medical Insurance Plans

Medical insurance for pets is a growing and important way of pet owners ensuring that they will be able to provide for their pet family member when they become sick or injured.  We are pleased to accept any insurance providers coverage but owners need know that most veterinary medical insurance plans require either 1) pre-approval for pre-payment of costs to be incurred with treatment (ie. surgery costs can be substantial and the payment from the insurer can be placed as a credit on your account prior to the procedure being performed) or 2) payment by the owner at the time of the procedure with reimbursement to the owner once insurance forms are submitted by the owner or by us.  We also provide free insurance trial coupons for select patients at their first visit as an easy and no-obligation introduction to the world of veterinary medical insurance.  30% of all pets will become sick or injured by the time they are 3 years of age.  This reality makes investing in veterinary medical insurance a great option for most pet owners.  Ask us more about this.
