Please understand our financial requirements. The Veterinary Teaching Hospital is largely self-supported. Please let us know if you have budgetary limits before we start diagnosis and treatment.
Payment Plans: Payment for all services is expected in full at the time of discharge. The University of Georgia does not offer payment plans. We do accept all major credit cards as well as CareCredit (http://www.carecredit.com) . If you know that finances will be an issue, please contact our accounting department at 706.542.5546 before your appointment time.
Estimates & Deposits: You will receive a preliminary estimate of the cost of your pet's veterinary care as soon as the initial evaluation of your pet is completed. If your pet is hospitalized, you will need to be prepared to leave half of the high end of the estimate as a deposit. For example, if your estimate is $1000-2000, you would be asked to leave a $1000 deposit. Please keep in mind that estimates can change if complications occur. Please be vigilant about asking how changes will affect the cost of treatment.
