Unlike our counterparts in human medicine, we receive no financing or grants from federal or sate agencies. Therefore, payment is expected when veterinary services are rendered. We accept Discover, MasterCard and Visa credit cards as well as cash and personal checks.
Prescription Medication Policy
Please be aware that South Carolina state law and veterinary practice law mandates that we MUST have a client-patient relationship before we can dispense prescription medications. This means that we must see you and your pet yearly for a physical examination. This makes perfect sense – we need to know the age, health, diet, medications, etc., that your pet is using before we can simply "guess" at the wellness or illness of the pet. You can't get medications for yourself by simply waking up your local pharmacist and requesting whatever you want, can you?
In addition to an examination, we must have a current or yearly heartworm test for your pet to continue dispensing heartworm medications. We will be glad to call in a prescription to any pharmacy when these criteria are met. Medications bought over the Internet are not considered "doctor approved" and guarantees (e.g., a negative heartworm status) will not be honored so that treatment will be paid by the client, not the company.
We are proud to provide our patients with the very best veterinary care possible. We know that having top-quality care available for your pet is important to you, but sometimes the cost of care can become a challenge. Budget decisions can be difficult. We offer a variety of payments options including cash, checks, credit card and CareCredit.
CareCredit is a personal line of credit for healthcare, both human and veterinary. It works like a credit card that is used for your pet's healthcare services. If your pet is ill and needs extensive medical treatment (immediate or long-term, medial or surgery), CareCredit can finance 100% of your pet's needs with no up front costs, no annual fees, and no pre-payment penalties. Your pet's treatment can begin immediately upon approval.
