No Medicare or PBS
AHVEC receives no government funding. Our continuing operation is totally financed from fees invoiced to clients. Fees are determined by the costs of keeping vets, nurses and receptionists up all night to look after pets, and the cost of maintaining the hospital and equipment to deal with every possible emergency.
Unfortunately because there is no time to prepare for an emergency, it can be financially as well as emotionally stressful when a terrible accident occurs to your pet after hours. Your consulting veterinarian will provide the most accurate estimate possible of the costs of treatment, and will work through any alternative treatments with you at the time.
