Thank you for considering our hospital as your pet’s provider of veterinary services. We are dedicated to maintaining the health of your pet and look forward to many future years together.

All decisions for pet(s)' health care, including end of life, will be your responsibility. If you agree to share all responsibilities with another person, please add their name with their signature.
To change the ownership of listed pet(s), all parties with ownership rights will have to sign another agreemant.
Payment in full is required at the time of service. We have several payment options available for our patients. They allow patients to receive veterinary care and still remain within the owner's budget.We accept VISA, MASTERCARD, DEBIT CARDS, CASH, PERSONAL CHECKS, AND SCRATCH PAY* (A FINANCE PLAN *subject to individual approval). We apply a 1.5% or $10 monthly service charge for any charges not paid in full over 30 days.
We ask that should it become necessary to reschedule or cancel an appointment, please notify our office at least 24 hours prior (2 full business days for surgery/dental procedures) in order to allow us the opportunity to offer the reserved appointment time to another patient. We understand that emergencies occur, however, short notice cancellations and NO SHOWS affect all of our patients resulting in time lost and treatment delayed. When a short notice cancellation or NO SHOW occurs, there will be an administrative fee charged for each appointment scheduled in the amount of $85 for appointments and $150 for surgical/dental procedures. Surgery/dental procedure appointments are premium time and as such so is the administrative fee! LATE ARRIVALS that prevent sufficient time to complete the scheduled appointment will be rescheduled and may be subject to a charge. We value our client's time and do everything possible to see each patient at their appointed time. However, please be aware there may be times when emergencies prevent us from seeing a patient at their exact scheduled appointment time. We will give you the option of staying for your appointment or to reschedule for a more convenient time.
