Here at Best Friends it is our policy to accept pre-payment for pets who are new to our clinic to ensure your appointment reservation for health care. There is a $10 non-refundable fee deducted from pre-payment if your appointment is canceled. Appointment pre-payment will be kept in its entirety in the case of a no call, no show or if your appointment is not canceled within 4 hours in advance.
To ensure ample time for scheduled appointments and surgical procedures we work by appointment only. Walk-ins may be taken on a case-by-case basis. Emergency situations will always take priority for the safety of the pet. Walk-ins, if approved to be seen, may be subjected to an after hours walk-in fee. Late appointments past 10 minutes are subject to a late fee or may require a reschedule. 4 hour cancellation notice is required to remain in good standing with our clinic. If your appointment is early in the morning it must be canceled by 5 pm the night before.
Medication Refill Policy
Medication refill requests are subject to Doctor's approval. All refills must be requested no less than 24 hours in advance. Express pick-up is available for prescriptions that are needed same-day for service charge of $5 on non-DEA Controlled Drugs and $10 on DEA Controlled Drugs. Please allow 24-48 hours for all prescriptions to be filled.
For medications that need to be compounded we require a non-refunable pre-payment and a non-refundable compounding fee of $17.50 will be applied, as well. 48 hours is given to pick-up compounded scripts once they are ready. After 48 hours the prescription will be discarded.
