What is pet insurance?
Pet insurance reimburses the owner after the pet has received care and the owner submits a claim to the insurance company. Our facility does not have in-house insurance plans, but we can help file claims once services have been paid in full. We do accept direct payment by Trupanion, and in most situations can have any payment by Trupanion prior to discharge. Take the time to research various pet policies before choosing the right one for your pet family. Please keep in mind that all insurance companies have a waiting period and do not cover pre-existing conditions. We recommend getting an insurance policy for your pet when they are young before any medical issues arise. Please speak with a staff member regarding any specific questions that you have.
What happens when my pet gets surgery?
Prior to surgery, it is important to fast your pet. Please take away all food and treats after 10 pm the night before the procedure, however, it is okay to leave water out. All pets need to be checked in no later than 9 am the day of the surgery. Please bring any current medications with your pet. If your pet is on insulin or has had complications with anesthesia in the past, please let us know before scheduling the appointment.
