Service Cost

The total appointment cost for an animal that is examined and treated at the Clinics of The School of Veterinary Medicine is approximate to the cost at a private clinic. Depending on the nature of the medical issue, the cost includes the clinical examination, the diagnostic exams, the possibility of surgery, medications, materials and nutrition during examination, treatment and hospitalization.

The visitor is given an estimated cost by the vet staff before any exam or treatment may be applied. The animal owners should understand that it is not always possible to determine the exact cost before any exam takes place. In the case that the animal should be hospitalized, a payment in advance is required, depending on the total estimated cost. The owners are also updated in case the actual cost exceeds the initial estimation during hospitalization.
