Our Payment Policy
We are dedicated to helping our clients care for their animals and realize that payment for treatment often is a concern. In general, our fees for routine patient care are similar to those of private veterinary hospitals. Specialty services require equipment and supplies that can be costly.

The State of Kansas does not provide funding specifically for the treatment of client-owned animals at the Veterinary Health Center. The major portion of the Veterinary Health Center operating budget including expenses for faculty and classified staff salaries, drugs, supplies, feed, laboratory services and operational expenses are generated from fees for client services. Consequently, it is imperative that we collect appropriate fees for service.

A deposit of approximately 60% of the estimate is required before treatment is initiated. Payment in full by cash, check, MasterCard or Visa is due upon termination of the office visit, completion of the ambulatory call or release of the patient from the hospital. The hospital business officer will be happy to discuss payment options.
