Metropolitan Veterinary Associates is a privately funded hospital which must depend on patient fees for support. No governmental or grant support is available for our operation. In order to continue to offer the highest level of services, we must charge fees in accordance with the services rendered.
Owners having their pet admitted for evaluation or treatment should receive an estimate of the total cost at the time of admission. Any change to that estimation may be given as time goes along. Predictions of any costs involved are purely estimates although in all circumstances the estimate will be as accurate an assessment as is possible.
Fees are due at the time services are rendered. Animals admitted to the hospital will require an initial deposit at the time of admission and payment of any balance due at the time of discharge. Payment for most services may be in the form of cash, personal check, major credit card or Care Credit (see below for payment restrictions for specific departments).
Special note on payment
- Please note, CareCredit is now accepted for ophthalmological surgery, but not for other ophthalmological services. See also Ophthalmology Services.
- Only cash, credit cards and carecredit are accepted for Emergency Services.
