Cost of Care

The OVRS staff will inform you of associated fees when you schedule an initial consultation for a visit. If your pet needs additional diagnostics or treatments, it might increase the cost. After an exam, a doctor can give you a detailed assessment of your pet’s treatment options and an estimated cost of care.

Our staff encourages you to voice any questions or concerns that you have about the cost before the treatment. Clear communication helps the staff know your expectations and wishes about the course of treatment.

Although we cannot predict all necessary treatment before it happens, we make every effort to inform you of any additional costs as soon as possible. Payment is expected at time of discharge. If your pet is hospitalized for any treatments or procedures, we require a deposit.

OVRS accepts cash, checks, debit cards, money order, Visa®, MasterCard®, American Express®, Discover®, CareCredit, and Wells Fargo.
