Information about Medical Fees
Tulare-Kings Emergency Service is not a part of any other veterinary facility. Because of that, and so that we can continue to provide you with high quality service utilizing the best medical technologies, we require that payment be made at the time services are rendered.
We provide estimates for all surgeries and hospitalizations, and you are encouraged to discuss treatment options and the fees for each option with the staff.
A deposit is required on all pets left for hospital care.
TKVES accepts payment via cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. We do not extend credit or provide payment plans, however, we do utilize CareCredit, Citi Health Card, and other major credit cards for those that are interested in extended payment options. Please see the additional information below for more details.
When unexpected illness strikes a pet, unexpected expense strikes as well. Tulare-Kings Veterinary Emergency Services understands this and is able to make some special arrangements through the CareCredit program or the Citi Health Card program. Applying is quick and easy, and will allow you to break down your payment into monthly installments. You can either apply at our hospital, where we'll call in your application over the phone for immediate approval, or apply yourself online by clicking one of the icons above.

Make emergency vet hospitals available for low income families

My cat got sick on saturday died monday morning It was so quick I had no time to react but to try and find an emergency clinic. That did not work out well.. He had to die at home because I did not have the cost to go into a walk in emergency clinic to have him put to sleep so he did not have to suffer. I called vets today (monday) and by the time I got a hold of one, he had already passed away. This could have been avoided. I dealt with, what many families deal with every day in NYS. Not enough money to help a pet with an emergency medical cost. ASPCA is great, the Hudson Valley Aminal rescue and sanctuary is also great, but we need something for emergencies. I propose an idea to where someone (meeting income guidelines of course) go into any emergency vet, after all the cost are through, They sign a contract with the vet (or other company or assitance program involved) for a payment agreement on a sliding scale with their income. The pet owner pays a deposit of (say its 300 dollars and they pay a deposit of 100 dollars) a percentage based on their income. The state wont have to pay anything, and contracts will be signed so the vet or other company has something in writing as far as them getting the rest of their money.
There is the carecredit program, but a lot of low income families do not have the credit to get this credit card. There's also pet insurance which is very high in premiums. I want to come up with a alternative way for those who are stuck in the middle! I am will to negotiate any idea you may have. This is important to me because this was a true lost to my family, I don't want another family to go through the same thing.

Problems facing the veterinary profession!
What is the veterinary profession doing to stop this negative trend? How much longer do you believe that all the best marketing in the world, having the best social media marketing campaigns, optimizing your web presence and being certified for "Fear Free" is going to.
You do all the right things to get new clients in your door: forward booking, email promotions, appointment reminders, social media and online presence, preventive care education, perhaps offering a mobile app, and getting referrals from your existing clients. But, as.
We have been using VetBilling since July of 2015. The last thing I thought we needed was another payment method. But we started having more cancellations because of client financial concerns. So, we bit the bullet and signed up for VetBilling. And I’m glad we did! Some of our clients just don’t qualify for CareCredit, but they want to get their pet the medical attention it needs.
