Family Pet Hospital understands that quality veterinary care can be expensive- after all we are pet owners too! Unfortunately common sounding veterinary procedures such as "spay" or "neuter" may include different things at different clinics. It is important to compare "apples to apples" when asking about veterinary care. A good veterinary clinic will be happy to answer your questions and discuss your concerns. Please use the following guides to help you compare our services to other veterinary clinics.
The world of veterinary medicine has undergone significant changes in recent years and continues to change at a rapid pace. These changes have allowed veterinarians to diagnose and treat previously untreatable conditions. In fact, tests such as MRI, CT Scans, echocardiograms, and ultrasound (just to name a few) that you would associate with a human hospital are also available to your pet. Previously unknown treatments now allow veterinarians to improve your pet's quality of life as well as the length of his/her life. Often, this new technology translates into increased costs to pet owners.
Did you know that 1 in 3 pets will require unexpected veterinary care over the course of a year? While we sincerely hope your furry family member remains healthy for many years, planning for your pet's future needs and health is an important part of being a responsible pet parent.
Below you will find information on Family Pet Hospital's policies as well as some information regarding insurance and payment options.
Our fees are based on the time, expertise, and technologies required for your pet's visit or procedure as well as the cost of materials and the treatments utilized for your pet. Many pet owners try to compare the cost of veterinary medicine to their own healthcare cost- Please remember that the true, total for your (human) health care costs are rarely seen due to insurance and government subsidies. It is also important to remember that your veterinarian is not only your pet's "family physician" but also his/her dentist, surgeon, neurologist, cardiologist, ophthalmologist, dermatologist, etc. All payments are due at time of service.
