Answers to your questions!
What is considered an emergency?
There are many ways to find out if your companion needs immediate attention and they are as follows: Abnormal behavior (not waking up, stiffness, sensitive to touch) bleeding, unusual mouth smell, excessive scratching, seizures, disorientation. If you suspect that there is trauma due to an accident it probably is. If you suspect they have ingested any known dangerous objects or chemicals and it is showing uncontrollable vomiting or diarrhea. If there are parasites in their stool or mouth. If there is any kind of abscess or inflammation growing on their skin, abdominal area, neck or overall body area.

What are your payment options?
Payment is due when services are rendered.
We accept cash, debit cards, checks (with valid Texas ID), CareCredit, and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover).
We do not offer payment plans or billing. However, we recognize that with the joys of owning a pet, there can also be unexpected occurrences. It is for this reason that we have partnered with Care Credit to offer other payment options to our clients. Please give us a call to hear about how to use this at our clinic. The application process is easy and can be done online at Care Credit’s website or at our office.
Another option we highly recommend for your pet is to enroll them in Pet Insurance. It can help offset the costs associated with a pet’s routine and emergency healthcare depending on the company and plan selected. We recommend Nationwide Pet Insurance for all pets. They cover birds and exotic companions too. We also recommend Pumpkin Pet Insurance for dogs and cats. There are other good offerings out there. Try Pawlicy Advisor for a quick, custom analysis. It’s quick, free, and easy!
Pet Insurance does not work like human insurance. With Pet Insurance, you pay your bill using one of the approved methods above. After paying, you will file a claim with your insurance company, and they will reimburse you for what they cover for the visit.
