What are the Costs of Your Treatments?

We seek to tailor our recommended treatments to the unique needs of the patient and owner. Your client's cost for the veterinary care of their pet will vary depending upon patient size, the required diagnostic tests, the type of treatment, duration of hospitalization, etc. We always provide pet owners with a written estimate before pursuit of extensive diagnostic or treatment plans. If you would like to give them an approximation of cost prior to referral, the best option is to call us on our veterinarian consult line at (970) 631-5706.
