Veterinary Fees:  Why are they so high?

In order to maintain a well-equipped facility and trained support staff, each hospital has their own overhead to maintain.  Blood analyzers, x-ray machines, microscopes to a well-stocked pharmacy--these things are extremely expensive.  Add in the cost of rent, utilities, and fixtures, and it all adds up.

At Paw Prints Animal Hospital, our goal is to provide you and your pet with a 30-minute appointment to ensure a thorough examination and to discuss treatment options or answer your questions and concerns.  Client service is top priority.  In order to maintain maximum client/doctor contact, our appointment slots are limited.

Our fees reflect the quality of services provided, the continuing education of our employees to stay on top of new developments in diagnosing and treating our furry patients, as well as to provide them a living wage and benefits.

If you have any questions or concerns about fees, we are happy to provide you with a written estimate for any service prior to any work being done on your pet.
