FEES at The FoxNest Veterinary Hospital
2015

New: we waive your 10% co-pay if your pet has pet insurance... click here for details and recommendations


General Fees
Examinations:

Wellness Exams and general exams for the sick and injured $40
Wellness Exams for puppies and kittens $30
Post Purchase Puppy or Kitten Exam  $30
Quickly resolved mini-exam  $20-30
Quick pregnancy palpation:  $0-15
Vaccination and Exam Packages  $40-90

Recheck Exams needed in the first 3-4 weeks after seeing your pet for some problem are generally No Charge  IF
  
    1. No outstanding balance
    2. The patient gets it's annual exam and vaccine package with us
    3. The recheck exam is quick and easy

Emergency Fees:  this is a frustrating subject;  I need some time with my family,  but I don't want any animals to be miserable and I especially don't want any recent patient to be neglected, so I give out my home phone number to clients, but please don't call unless the problem is serious.

Emergency Fees:

-to check on a recent patient - especially a recent surgical patient with something wrong:  $0-25
-for regular patients; depending on convenience, the time, duration etc:
$25-75
-for new patients: $50-100
In addition, I charge $100 an hour after the first 45 minutes.

It's often better and less expensive if you have a major case needing all night care to go to the nearest 24 hour emergency hospital (near the Anderson Mall): Phone 222-2188


Hospitalization:   
$24/night plus cost of treatments for routine cases
$40 PLUS/night plus cost of treatments for intensive care

Euthanasia and Cremation:
We anesthetize patients prior to euthanasia to minimize fear, pain, and anxiety.  The entire process including legal disposal if desired is $70-85
Cremation is available and is done by the very reputable St Francis of Greenville.  $90-250


What to Expect if your Pet is Sick


Exam $40
Hospitalization if needed  $24/night
Lab work if needed  $14-100
Radiographs if needed   $85  ( a little extra if sedation needed)
Injections and medications: typically $10-100 per day while in the hospital
IV Fluids if needed   $45/day
Procedures & supplies such as enemas, bandaging, catheters etc  $0-50
Take home medications  $0-100

As you can see, quite a range all depending on what your pet needs.  But nonetheless, you can get a rough idea; most sick animals can be treated with good results for $75-400


         What to Expect if your Pet Needs Surgery                                        

We have special surgery package prices for spays and neuters that we do below cost to encourage everyone to spay and neuter their pet.  Please click here to go to our spay-neuter page

For other surgeries the fees all depend on the health status of the patient, how severe the surgical problem and lots of other factors.

But in general, most of our very minor surgeries at the FoxNest cost $10-100 and our more major procedures cost $100-400

But that's only for the surgery. It typically costs between $80-200 for all the other stuff involved in caring for a surgical patient.  These might include:
Pre-anesthetic check up/exam for vital signs $0-20
Hospitalization  $24-40/night
            Preanesthetic pain medication  $0-10
            Preanesthetic sedation $0-5
IV Fluids if needed  $45
Pre-anesthetic blood work (to test kidney & liver function, glucose, anemia, proteins) $52
            Either Injectable and/or Gas anesthesia $60-120
Digital Monitoring during the anesthetic and recovery period $0-22
Additional pain management as needed  $0-15
Post Op Oxygen therapy as needed $22
            Careful observation and care through recovery $0
Post Op antibiotics, antiseptics, other medications, restraints, to send home  $0-100
Follow up care, rechecks, and suture removal  $0 usually


Your pet may need just a few of the services listed above in order to have a safe and comfortable experience.  It will all depend.  Many of these services will be required and others are optional.    Please click here to go to our page discussing the costs vs benefits as well as the choices you will need to make for your pet if it needs surgery.




What to Expect if your Pet Needs Dentistry

Most Pets:  Pet dentistry is a fairly big deal involving anesthesia and a good bit of time for both the dental technicians and the doctor.   Fee for everything involved range from $150-350 depending on the severity of the case, which anesthetic agents are needed, the blood work package we think is most appropriate and several other factors...... all of which are explained on our page about what to expect if your pet needs dentistry
