Just like human doctors, veterinarians are expected to meet minimum standards of care (as overseen by veterinary regulatory authorities). Thus, the quality of care your pet receives should not change based on the fees charged for services. However, if prices are considerably lower at one clinic, you should ask for clarification about what the procedure or treatment includes. You may find substantial differences in the level of care provided by that clinic.
Spinnaker Veterinary Clinic is A.A.H.A. (The American Animal Hospital Association) accredited. This means that we hold ourselves to a higher standard of care and have been voluntarily evaluated on over 900 aspects involved in veterinary care. Only 12-15% of animal hospitals in the United States and Canada have made this voluntary commitment to excellence!
