The exam fee for pets seen through the Emergency service is $95. During an Emergency exam, one of our dedicated emergency clinicians will perform a thorough examination and determine the best way to proceed in treating your pet. If your pet should need medications, diagnostic tests, hospitalization, or treatments, a customized estimate will be prepared. All foreseeable costs will be included in the treatment plan and the owner’s authorization is required before further action is taken. Pet owners are always encouraged to discuss financial concerns with staff. Unless hospitalized, payment for an emergency visit is due in full at time of service.
Referral service consultations are $150. During consultations, an individual treatment plan with associated estimates is presented. 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. Pet owners must 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 ask a VREC Client Service Representative or apply directly online. Any/all financial concerns should be discussed with the doctor managing your pet’s care or with a CSR.
