Financial Policies



We understand that emergency care is unexpected and can be costly. In order to continue to provide the most advanced emergency veterinary care, the Emergency Animal Hospital of Ellicott City does require payment at the time of services. It is our belief that each client needs to be presented with a treatment plan that includes the cost of care so that they can make an informed decision regarding the treatment option for their pet. A detailed treatment plan will be reviewed with every client before initiating diagnostic testing or treatment.
