Q: How much does it cost to have my pet seen?
A: Each case varies on cost depending on the pet and the reason for their visit. Every patient that is scheduled with one of our veterinarians will receive a complete physical exam as well as a recommended treatment plan based on exam findings. The veterinarian or assistant in your appointment will discuss vaccinations, treatment options available, and any possible medication or prevention recommendations. The assistant can create an estimate for the recommended treatment plan following the doctor's examination. General estimates for routine visits are available upon request.
