Our vet service prices

Your pet's welfare is our focus, not high vet bills. We charge a small fee for consultations. This enables us to discount vet prices for life-saving treatments.

How much will I pay?

Our prices vary depending on which means-tested benefits you receive. Once you register with us, we’ll let you know if you qualify for Band A or Band B prices. Vet services offered through the Band A category are often fully subsidised. Please remember we always charge a small consultation fee for our services.

Our prices are transparent and straightforward so you can make informed decisions about spending. Check you are eligible for our vet support.

You qualify if you’re on any one of these benefits:

  • universal credit where there has not been a reduction in payment due to wages or other income (such as savings)
  • income support
  • jobseeker’s allowance (income-based)
  • employment and support allowance (income-related)
  • pension credit

You qualify if you’re on any one of these benefits:

  • universal credit where there has been a reduction in payment due to wages or other income such as savings
  • working tax credit
  • child tax credit
  • housing benefit with no other benefit
  • council tax reduction with no other benefit (not the 25% single person discount)

Frequently asked questions

Band A prices
You can register two pets with us. If you register any more pets with us than that, their treatment will be charged at Band B prices.

Band B prices
You can register all your pets with us, so long as they live with you.

We want to help you and your pet. In the consultation our vets and nurses will discuss the range of treatments you can afford. There may be more options available than you realise.

Make sure you’re not missing out on any benefits, such as income support or pension credit. For help, contact Citizens Advice or Age UK 

You have to pay for all operations and imaging in advance. If you’ve booked an appointment but can’t pay, we’ll reschedule the visit as long as it’s safe for your pet. If the need for treatment is urgent, we might be able to offer you a short-term direct debit payment plan.

If you don’t pay your bill, then we’ll have to stop treating your pet. If your pet were facing a life-threatening emergency, we would stabilise them and transfer them to a private vet.
