Question: How Much Does It Cost To See A Vet?

The average price of a veterinary office visit in the US is right around $50.

I’ve seen them as high as $250 for specialists and emergency hospitals and as low as $0 at places where the office visit is beside the point (as when vaccines, drugs, tests and procedures are all that get priced).

Is there a vet that will take payments?

Not all veterinarians offer payment plans, but some do. And some vets are willing to negotiate payment plans on a case-by-case basis, depending on the client’s need. If your vet doesn’t offer payment plans, ask if they accept CareCredit. CareCredit is a financing program for medical expenses for people and pets.
