Prices and Payment
Consultation Price – £61
Check-up Price – £45
In these straitened times everyone must be aware of their finances and when it comes to our pets, it is no different. Listed below are a few guidelines to help you negotiate this sometimes difficult area.
Prices will vary depending on the care or treatment required by your pet and as such it is impossible to make any suggestions on this site. Our veterinary staff will be willing to discuss the costs with you at the consultation. Our employees are given some latitude in these matters but the final decision rests with the Senior Veterinary Surgeons – if you would like to speak to a Director or the Practice Manager please make your wishes known.
For routine procedures we are very happy to give you an approximation on the telephone and then confirm this as an estimate when we see you. For less routine matters we will examine your pet before making an approximation of costs – please ask for this facility at the beginning of the consultation.
Many of the procedures we perform are not easily predictable, in which case you may be given a cost range or alternatively we can mutually agree a maximum figure above which we will only proceed after consulting further with you (one of the important reasons you are asked for relevant contact telephone numbers if you leave your pet with us).
In cases of emergency, we will stabilise the pet and then discuss the further treatment options and cost with you later. We may at our discretion, undertake with you a split payment arrangement over a maximum of three months, this applies to emergency treatment only (we constantly review this option and will withdraw it in the event of default)
Please feel free to ask for an estimate or approximation of costs at any time as this will help minimise any misunderstandings at a later date.
If you feel you cannot afford our fees please inform us from the outset – there may be alternative treatment options available either through ourselves or with the aid of some charitable organisations such as the PDSA.
We expect payment at the time of treatment.
We accept cash, cheques and most major credit cards (not American Express).
