The fee for an emergency visit is $95. Whether a critical triage or an after-hours emergency, an emergency clinician will perform an examination and determine the best way to proceed in treating your pet. If your pet should need medications, diagnostic tests, hospitalization, or treatments, our doctors and technicians will prepare an estimate and discuss their findings and treatment plan with you. All foreseeable costs will be included in the treatment plan and owner authorization is required before any further action is taken. We encourage all pet owners to discuss any financial concerns with the clinician treating your pet so the estimate can be tailored. Unless hospitalized, payment for an emergency visit is due in full at time of service.
A referral service consultation appointment is $150. An individual treatment plan will be presented, along with associated estimates. Medications, diagnostic tests, hospitalization, procedures, and follow-up visits are in addition to this consultation fee. Nothing further will be administered or performed until we have your authorization to proceed. Payment is due at the time of service.
If it is determined that your pet requires hospitalization, a high-end and low-end estimate for their care will be provided. You will be asked to make an initial deposit of 50% of the high-end estimate cost. The remainder of the balance is due at time of discharge and will be adjusted to reflect the fees accrued while in-hospital.
VREC accepts cash, in-state checks, all major credit cards, and Care Credit. Care Credit is a specialized healthcare credit plan which can be used as a payment plan in lieu of, or in combination with, a credit card. If you are interested in learning more about Care Credit, please see a VREC Client Service Representative or apply directly online. Financial concerns should be discussed with the doctor managing your pet’s care or with a CSR.
