We require prepayment of the estimated charges, and the balance is due upon discharge. We’ve made it easy for you to pay online and accept MasterCard, AmEx, Visa, Discover and CareCredit. We also accept checks or cash. Affordable financing is available for qualified clients. Our staff will be glad to assist with these arrangements either before, or at the time of the consultation.
In general, you should withhold food for 12 hours prior to your pet’s appointment. This will allow for any needed diagnostic testing, such as X-rays, to be performed under sedation or light anesthesia. Please confirm with your primary care veterinarian that it is safe for your pet to go without food. Water should always be available for your pet.
Please ensure that DVSC has been provided with your pet’s pertinent medical history prior to the time of consultation, including information about medications, previous laboratory results and X-rays. These may be sent by your referring veterinarian prior to your appointment, or you may bring them with you. If your veterinarian will be sending the information, we recommend calling your referring veterinarian the day prior to your appointment for confirmation that the records have been sent.
We recommend against leaving personal items with your pet. If you find this absolutely necessary, we will do our best to keep track of all items while your pet is here in order to return them to you. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee the return of personal items.
