Estimates are available upon request. In general - fees are competitive with regular veterinary clinics with the addition of a "trip fee" which covers the time and gas to get to and from your home or place of business. The trip fee ranges between $50-$120 (more for outlying areas) depending on where you are located and is charged per visit, not per pet. After that - the fees are similar to those found at other daytime practices. The exam fee is $50/pet for the first hour, $30 for each additional half hour. Pet insurance covers visits from house-call veterinarians - so if your pet has insurance - that can be used to help cover the cost of the veterinary services. For more information please contact your pet insurance company for rates/benefits. Fees for the most common services can be found below. If you would like a more precise estimate - please contact Vet To Pet at (775) 338-8500.
