If your pet becomes ill we will take your pet to the veterinarian. You are responsible for payment for vet care. Before you leave you will need to call your vet to let them know we are authorized to bring in your pet and you will need to leave a credit card number at the vet for any charges incurred. You may also leave us a letter of authorization in lieu of a phone call to the vet. Vet trips are charged at a rate of $65 per hour.
