Price Policy

St. Anne's Veterinary Group provides clients with a high level of clinical care, delivered with a high level of customer service. Maintaining a high standard requires ongoing investment in our people, their training and the equipment they use. Our clients trust us to deliver high standards and to minimise risk and maximise benefits for their pets. They also expect financial fairness and good value. We therefore make no attempt to be a low cost practice. Our aim is to provide a great product at a fair price. We are always willing to discuss our fees and the options available when funds are limited. We will always provide estimates on request and work with you to keep costs under control. You are always welcome to visit 'behind the scenes' to judge our facilities.

 

Payment

St. Anne's Veterinary Group continues to invest in staff and equipment to help you and your pet. This requires a considerable ongoing financial commitment. To help reduce our costs we require payment to be made at the time of each consultation or on collection of your pet after surgery or hospitalisation. If this is not possible then we request that you discuss the matter with one of our administrative team at the time. Please see our terms and conditions for further details.

 

Payment Methods

We accept VISA, MASTERCARD and SWITCH as well as cash and cheques.

 

Estimates

We will always provide you with an estimate before any surgical procedure, or before admitting your pet for hospital care. Your Veterinary Surgeon will discuss the costs of any investigations or treatments of 'out-patients' at the time of consultation. You will recieve an itemised invoice following each transaction.

 

Pet Insurance

We strongly recommend that you insure your pet. Modern Veterinary Practice provides the option of advanced specialst care at referral centres when appropriate. This can be an expensive service and pet insurance will allow you access to funds which will allow greater choice of treatments when your pet is unwell. We are an appointed representative of Pet Plan and recommend their insurance policies as comprehensive and fair. We are always happy to give advice on pet insurance.

 

 

Practice Price List August 2017

Microchip implantation

£15.00

We advise that all your pets are identified by microchip. Implantation is safe and the chip provides a reliable form of permanent identification of your pet. We have had many cases of pets reunited with their owners which would not have happened if they were not 'chipped' At St. Anne's we use the Tracer Advance system which includes free lifetime regisration with Petlog the biggest database of pet microchips in the UK. We can implant at any time but prefer to allow puppies and kittens time to grow and often implant chips at the time of neutering.

Consultation fee - first dog or cat

£39.95

Our standard consultation lasts 10 minutes, but we will always give you the time that you need with no increase in cost.

Prescriptions

We do not currently give discounts for clients requiring multiple prescriptions as we do not give clients discounts for buying multiple drugs directly.
