What to Expect as a Pets In Need Client

  • After enrolling, your pet is eligible to schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians. The co-payment at your pet’s first visit is $40.00 then $20.00 per visit after the first visit. Charge includes exam by a veterinarian, basic vaccinations, and most prescriptions. There is an additional cost for some services.
  • All appointments not cancelled 24 hours in advance are subject to a non-refundable $15.00 late cancellation fee.
  • After your pet has seen one of our veterinarians you will be eligible to purchase for a $7.00 monthly co-pay (per pet) flea/tick and heartworm prevention.
  • Payment is due at time of service. We accept cash and debit/credit card. Debit/credit cards are subject to a $1.00 processing fee.
  • If your pet is not yet spayed or neutered you are required to have them altered in order to keep your enrollment at Pets In Need. After seeing our veterinarian you will be provided a voucher that allows you to have your pet altered for a minimal co-pay.
  • Your income-qualified enrollment is good for one year. To keep your enrollment current you must re-enroll annual. This requires providing updated income information and completing another application.
