At Urban PetRx, our main concern is the health and well-being of your pet. We want you to have every opportunity to provide the care and treatment your pet needs, yet we understand that finances can sometime hinder this goal.
Our fees are based on the time, expertise, and technologies required for your pet’s visit or procedure as well as the cost of materials and the treatments utilized for your pet. The public often wonders why veterinary services are more than shelters, humane societies, and low-cost clinics. The answer is simple, veterinary businesses, such as Urban PetRx are not funded by any outside government agencies, non-profit organizations, or donations from the public. As such, our costs are generally a reflection of our expenses and often out of our control. Truth be told, veterinary clinics use the same distributors and laboratories, thus have many similar expenses for medications, supplies, and lab tests. At Urban PetRx, we do everything we can, to be honest, fair, and keep our costs reasonable.
All Payments Are Due at the Time of Service
We require payment at the time of your appointment when services are rendered or medication dispensed.
Collecting payment when services are provided guarantees our ability to keep the hospital stocked with appropriate medications and supplies, well equipped with necessary diagnostic tools, and staffed with an enthusiastic and passionate team of dedicated employees.
We Accept the Following Forms of Payment
- Major Credit Cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express) and Debit Cards
- Payment Plans Through Third-Party Vendors Including CareCredit* and Scratchpay*

Pet insurance is becoming more popular and, while it doesn’t cover everything, it can be a huge help should your pet suffer an unexpected illness or accident. Brochures from a number of companies are available in our lobby. Every company is different, so it’s a good idea to visit www.PetInsuranceReview.com and compare policies to find the one best suited for you and your pet. Our team is available to answer questions you may have regarding pet insurance and provide you with the necessary documentation to submit a claim to your insurance carrier.
Deposits for Care
Urban PetRx is happy to provide information regarding its services and estimates of accrued and anticipated costs. A deposit may be required for some treatments, surgeries, or hospitalized care. If the low-end of a healthcare estimate exceeds more than $1000, we will require a 50% deposit to begin your pet’s treatment.
We wish that finances didn’t need to be discussed at a time when the health of your pet is of primary importance. Our goal is to provide state-of-the-art diagnostics, patient care, and surgery, with exceptional client service. We want your pet to have the best!
Thank you for choosing Urban PetRx! We look forward to working with you and your pet.
