Payment

We appreciate your understanding that we are a “pay at the time” practice, including emergencies, and we can help you with this by providing an estimate of costs on request.

A prepayment of a deposit may be required prior to some services being undertaken, and your cooperation is appreciated.

Please appreciate that an estimate is not a quotation, and that the costs may vary depending on the clinical particulars of the procedure and any complications that become evident.

We accept payment by cash or debit/credit card (we do not accept American Express or cheques)

We do not offer credit options, delayed payments or accounts.

If you are unable to meet the costs of treatment, then please seek assistance from charitable support options such as the PDSA or RSPCA.

Insurance

Illness and emergency affect many pets, and we recommend pet insurance as a means to help cater for unexpected events.

We do not offer direct claims for insurance and require payment at the time for treatments received.

Upon receipt of an insurance claim form, we will complete it expediently and your insurers will reimburse you once they have processed your claim.

Insurance claim forms for greater than £100 are processed free of charge, for claims less than £100 including continuation claims a £20 fee is charged, which is not covered by your policy and must be paid prior to the form being completed.
