Missed Appointment Policy

Because we see a large volume of clients, we are able to charge comparatively less than would be charged at other veterinary practices for similar services. When clients miss appointments or reschedule with less than 24 hour notice, we see fewer patients, making it difficult to maintain our affordable prices. To maintain our prices we have established a Missed Appointment Policy/Deposit Requirement where clients are charged $30 non-refundable surgery deposit. The deposit will be applied to the cost of the surgery. This policy allows us to continue to offer the community affordable veterinary care.
