Costs of Speciaized Cardiology Care
Costs of Specialized Cardiology Care
We are committed to providing excellent care for your pet at a reasonable cost.
Vermont Veterinary Cardiology Services is staffed by a highly-skilled, board-certified veterinary specialist and very qualified certified technicians. Our equipment and technology is state-of-the-art and upgraded as technology gets better. Many treatments and procedures are complex. All of these advantages incur certain costs, over and above what a non-specialized animal hospital needs to invest.
As in human medicine, care has become more effective and faster, and at the same time more complex and often more expensive. Even so, the equivalent treatment for the same disease in a person typically costs far less for pets.
Sometimes, specialty care can actually save money. Advanced diagnostics can save pet owners money by pinpointing a problem quickly and early, enabling use of the most effective treatment. Without these diagnostics, veterinarians must guess at the problem and may have to re-treat the animal several times.
We help you manage your costs in three main ways:
- Keeping our fees reasonable in relation to the quality of care received.
- Giving you estimates as early and as accurately as possible.
- Giving you choices on payment method.
If the actual services needed exceed the treatment plan, we will make every effort to keep you informed of the additional care and cost during the treatment phase. In some cases, this may not be possible given the patient's condition and need of immediate care. Please share all of your questions and concerns regarding costs with your doctor or technician before treatment begins. It is important that your medical team have a clear understanding of your wishes before any course of treatment is undertaken.
Payment for services is expected at the time of discharge.
