Oakland Veterinary Referral Services Offers the Very Best Care for Your Pet: Costs & Payment Info for Veterinary Services


Oakland Veterinary Referral Services Offers the Very Best Care for Your Pet.

As a premiere veterinary specialty and emergency/critical care facility, OVRS is staffed by top-notch veterinarians and board-certified specialists with a well-trained team of customer care representatives, licensed veterinary technicians, and veterinary assistants who all work together to meet your pets' needs. Our hospital is staffed 24-hours per day, 7 days a week by skilled emergency doctors to provide advanced patient care any time of the day or night. Our equipment and technology is state-of-the-art and is routinely upgraded as technology improves. We provide a level of sophistication that can only be found in the most advanced and progressive veterinary hospitals in the world. We understand the strong bond that our clients have with their pets, and we realize they are part of the family. We strive to provide this exceptional care at reasonable cost.

When you schedule your initial consultation, you will receive an explanation of the associated fees. The need for additional diagnostics and treatments may not be known prior to this consultation. Once your pet has been evaluated by one of our doctors, you will receive an assessment of your pet's treatment options, and an estimation of cost allowing you to make an informed decision on how to proceed with your pet's care.

Please share all of your questions and concerns regarding costs with your doctor or technician before treatment begins. It is important that your medical team have a clear understanding of your wishes before any course of treatment is undertaken, as this minimizes any misunderstandings. However, because of the unpredictable nature of some conditions, the course of treatment and outcome, along with costs, cannot be fully predicted. In the event that the services needed exceed the treatment plan, we will make every effort to keep you informed of the additional care and cost.

Payment for services is expected at the time of discharge. A deposit will be required if your pet is hospitalized and for certain treatments and procedures.

OVRS accepts cash, checks, debit cards, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and CareCredit®.

Dear Staff,
Thank you so much for you support during Taylors stay. Everyone was so unbelievably kind and supportive. All the times I called to check on Taylor- and all my visits day and night- you always made me feel welcome and you went out of your way to take care of us. Your kindness and thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated! How lucky Taylor and I were to have worked with you. Thanks!
