Slide Your Patient, Our Hospital The Emergency Service
If a pet is presented to the emergency service and requires immediate stabilization, the client is asked to sign a consent form for treatment. After initial stabilization is performed, the emergency doctor discusses the diagnostic and treatment options with the client, as well as the costs associated with treatment.
If the pet is assessed to be stable at initial triage, there may be a wait before the pet is seen. The policy at BSVESS is to see patients in order of arrival, unless a patient’s condition requires immediate attention. We make every effort to keep the client’s wait to a minimum. After an initial consultation, the client will be presented with diagnostic and treatment options and the costs of care will be discussed (see Payment Policy). We offer CareCredit and ScratchPay to clients who need it, but unfortunately we do not offer in-house payment plans and our funding for clients in need is very limited.
We accept cash, checks and credit card payments. We do not offer payment plans but do accept CareCredit and Scratchpay, which offer interest-free financing options. We are also linked to an account with Waggle - an online crowd-funding site which some clients may be eligible to pursue.
The Specialty Services
If your patient would benefit from seeing a specialist, and is not in need of immediate or same day attention, we strongly advise that they make an appointment. We encourage you to call so we can help determine how best to get your patient the appointment they need. If the patient cannot wait for an appointment, they can be seen through the emergency service, but we are often able to accommodate a patient’s needs and get them in with the appropriate specialist in a timely manner.
