Our policy for fair transparent pricing
We aim to keep our prices in proportion to what it costs us to perform a procedure, provide a service or deliver a product. We also share out the overhead costs such as our buildings and equipment across all of our prices. We try and keep these costs as low as possible for the quality being provided – which is helped by us not having shareholders.
We also use ethical pricing to improve access – that means when we are able to lower prices we focus on doing this for emergency or urgent procedures, where owners don’t have time to save up for a procedure, or elective procedures that are part of welfare initiatives. This is to help animals access the care they need when they need it.
What we don’t do is offer ‘loss leader’ procedures to lure in new clients, only to charge very high fees in cases of sickness, illness or injury. We think it is much better to charge a fair price across all our services and to help pets access care whilst ensuring owners do not incur any nasty cost surprises.
Help with Complications – A Promise to You
Occasional complications are a fact of surgical procedures, it doesn’t mean someones at fault but it does mean further treatment may be needed. We understand that the costs of this can be a worry for clients at time when everyone’s focus is on getting their pet better.
That’s why, when you have a complication after a surgical procedure at Animal Trust we’ll perform one further corrective surgery and provide the medication & lab tests needed to treat the complication. And we make a commitment of charging no more than £100 for this however much treatment we provide. We can’t help with any costs incurred at another vet but for further treatment at Animal Trust the reassurance is there.
This help lasts for 3 weeks after the initial surgery (extended to 8 weeks after orthopaedic surgery) and will be there if we need to do further treatment to achieve the initial surgical aim. It doesn’t include situations where the underlying condition has progressed, or if it is decided in the opinion of one of our vets that a different treatment plan is now appropriate.
How we treat a complication is decided by our vets who we promise will act to get the best result for your pet. In order for us to provide this help, we just ask that you have settled you account in full at the time of the first surgery and that you followed, and continue to follow, our treatment advice for the course of treatment.
