THE COST OF CARE
Michigan Veterinary Specialists is committed to providing quality care to our clients at the most reasonable cost possible. As a premier regional medical center, Michigan Veterinary Specialists relies upon the experience and knowledge of our highly skilled, board-certified veterinary specialists, veterinarians and large number of licensed technicians who harness the advantages of the most technologically advanced medical equipment available. Additionally, MVS is staffed 24-hours a day, seven days a week by experienced, compassionate professionals who care about your pet and who are constantly monitoring your pet's condition.
The expenses relating to specialized medical care are often a significant concern for families. We understand and try, whenever possible, to provide you with an accurate estimate of the cost of care for your pet.
Due to the technical nature of some conditions, however, it is not always possible to precisely predict the outcome and associated costs. Before treatment begins, the MVS medical team will provide you with a recommended treatment plan and expense summary. You will be asked to sign this estimate.
If significant variation from the treatment plan summary occurs (>20%), you will be apprised of the additional cost before any additional measures are implemented. If you have any concerns regarding cost, please discuss these with your MVS doctor or technician before treatment begins to ensure that MVS staff members have a clear understanding of your wishes.
Payment for services is expected at the time of discharge. A deposit will be required if your pet is staying at the hospital for evaluation or treatments.
Michigan Veterinary Specialists accepts cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and CareCredit, a medical finance plan. For information on CareCredit, please see the Michigan Veterinary Specialists' reception team or log onto: Care Credit.
