Charging appropriately for the professional services our small, independent practice provides, enables us to maintain a sustainable business aiming to deliver successful outcomes for the animals under our care.

We invite and encourage discussions about any personal circumstances you feel may influence clinical decision making. With shared responsibility, we aim to work together to achieve the best possible standard of healthcare for your pet.

The cost of this depends on factors including your pet’s age and current health and would be discussed with you prior to gaining your consent to proceed.

Post operative protection is an additional cost as options vary, from protective collars to pet shirts in different sizes. You will be advised of the cost of this according to your pet’s individual requirements.

Making payment

Full payment is required at the time of treatment.

We accept payment by:

  • credit card (with the exception of American Express)
  • debit card
  • cash.

Insurance claims

Pet insurance can provide peace of mind in the event of illness or injury and we recommend that you take out a policy suitable for you and your pet. We offer direct claims if you are insured with Pet Plan, to facilitate this you will need to produce your policy documents detailing your cover and pay to us your policy excess (the amount you need to contribute to the cost of a claim). If you are insured with another insurance company, you will be required to pay our fees in full. We can then submit a claim to your insurers, if you would like us to do so.

Please note – you as owner are responsible for all veterinary fees incurred regardless of whether your pet is insured.
