Our financial protocols are in place to ensure we are able to keep our doors open and provide exceptional care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Your pet is our number one priority and we can assure you that your pet will always receive individualized, quality care. To achieve our mission, we must cover our costs for hiring dedicated and experienced doctors and technicians and paying a living wage, investing in specialized equipment, keeping medications/supplies/tests in stock, and providing additional resources and training that our team needs in order to be able to continue to provide exceptional care to your pet. The prices we have established at our hospital are set in order offer advanced medical diagnostics and treatments while maintaining the best and most compassionate care. We understand veterinary care can be costly, especially where Emergency and Specialized care is concerned. We always try to accommodate our clients to the best of our ability and make recommendations for lower-cost care where it is necessary and/or appropriate. Thank you for collaborating with us to achieve the best possible treatment plan for both you and your pet.

DCES' Payment Policy

You will be advised of the recommended diagnostic procedures and associated costs before we proceed with any services. It is our goal to ensure that you are fully informed on treatment options and costs so that we can work together to tailor a treatment plan for your pet.

If your pet requires hospitalization, a minimum pre-payment of 100% of the high end of estimated charges is required. We will keep you apprised of treatments that may exceed our original estimate, and may ask for additional payment during your pet's stay. Any balance remaining will be due at the conclusion of your pet's stay.

Although we do not provide in-house payment plans to our clients, we have financial options provided by a third party that we are happy to discuss with you. Additionally, we want to make sure that every pet has the opportunity to lead a healthy life, which is why we are happy to accept pet insurance. Don't have pet insurance?
