Humane Veterinary Hospitals provide the same standard of care for all animals.  Those who require additional financial assistance should ask about our reduced and sliding scale fees.

SLIDING SCALE & REDUCED COST SERVICES*

Senator Edward Kennedy said in 1980, “Let us resolve that the state of a family’s health shall never depend on the size of a family’s wealth.”  Neither should the state of your pet’s health.

For those requiring a little extra assistance, Humane Veterinary Hospitals have several ways to help.  We offer a standardized sliding scale fee structure based upon client income.  These rates provide a 10% to 20% reduction in the costs to provide veterinary care.  The intention of this program is to allow pet owners to provide full and complete veterinary care for their pets but are financially incapable of.  Our hope is that we can help people keep their pet happy and happy where they belong- at home.

This program is need-based and requires pre-approval. It is open to all who qualify. Please print and fill out the Sliding Scale Discount Application and submit it during your next appointment with Humane Veterinary Hospitals.

Sliding scale pricing is based upon the Federal Poverty Guidelines and reduce rates by the following amounts*:

151% or above poverty rate: regular fee
141-150% of poverty rate: 10% off veterinary services
131-140% of poverty rate: 15% off veterinary services
121% or less of poverty rate: 20% off veterinary services

NOTE (6-1-10): Until further notice, sliding scale discounts will be capped at 20%.  Because this is a program funded by donations, we are unable to extend greater discounts due to decreased contributions during the economic downturn.  Help us return to our normal program by making a donation (click here).

*Some services and items may be excluded from these discounts and some other services may be discounted at a higher rate. Some products, including Interceptor heartworm/intestinal worm preventive and Frontline flea/tick treatment are offered at low cost and are not discounted further.

Example: A family of four earning $31,800 (150% of Federal Poverty Rate) would be eligible for a 10% discount and a family of four earning $21,200 (100% of Federal Poverty Rate) would be eligible for a 33% discount.

Proof of eligibility is required (current pay stub or current determination of income status by an acceptable State or Federal human services agency).  Proof of status must be determined and approved prior to any treatment being provided at reduced rates.

Please contact us for more information about any of these special programs.  Some services, medications and procedures that are already being offered at, near or below cost may be excluded from the sliding scale program.
