Cost of Treatment
Providing veterinary care is costly. It requires a considerable investment in equipment, medicines, and trained staff. Veterinary practices are businesses, and as such have to charge a fair price for the services provided. There is no 'NHS' for pets.
We recommend pet insurance to remove any concerns about cost. In the event of an injury or illness, pet insurance can be the difference between having the very best treatment, or making unpleasant compromises or choices. Contact the practice for some general advice about chosing a policy - they do not all provide the same level of cover!
At The Fenton Veterinary Practice we recommend Petplan insurance - click here to find out why!
There are some organisations who may offer financial help to owners of pets who require certain emergency treatments. Generally, they take the owners circumstances into account, and may cover part of the cost of treatment. Please ask for details at the surgery.
Written estimates are provided for all procedures and itemised invoices provided on completion of all procedures/treatments. We do our best to predict what may be required, but occasionally things may be more complicated and costs may rise as a result. We will do our best to keep you informed, but please ask if you are concerned.
