How do you get your pet’s prescription if they are not due for a recheck?2023-04-06T18:11:11+09:30

As long as your pet is not due for a re-examination, all you need to do is to let us know you need more medication. The vet nurse that talks to you on the phone then asks the Veterinarian to authorize the prescription of the medication.

The Costs of Veterinary Care2023-04-06T18:15:55+09:30

your veterinarian is not only your pet’s general physician, but also its surgeon, radiologist, dentist, dermatologist, neurologist, ophthalmologist, psychiatrist, ears/nose/throat doctor, and Veterinary pharmacist. Your veterinary bill is a reflection of the costs of maintaining suitable facilities, equipment, and trained and experienced staff to provide the level of care that is expected in animal medicine today.

The cost of veterinary care has actually risen very little during the last 20 to 30 years. However advancements in both research and technology have allowed us to offer your pet better healthcare and prolong their life through surgical procedures and drugs. When compared to the rising cost of human health care, pet care is not at all unreasonable.

Remember too that the original cost of the animal has no bearing on the cost of services rendered.

Although it may feel as if you are paying more for your pet’s health care than your own, chances are you may be used to Medicare rebates, prescribed pharmaceutical scheme benefits and health care insurance for your own medical services. Consequently, you often do not see the total bottom-line figure for your own bills. When human health care costs are added up – there is no comparison to the much lower veterinary care costs.
