From time to time, your pet may need additional care from other pet care providers such as:
We would appreciate your permission to share your pet’s medical records when requested by these other parties so we can help streamline the process and prevent delays. Boarders and groomers often need current vaccination and parasite check records to allow admittance; pet health insurance companies typically need to see records to process claims; specialty and emergency practices have an easier time of creating treatment plans when they have the whole history.
To prevent the delay of services, we request your permission to share medical records when requested for your pet. Please indicate your choice below

Deposit for Appointments
1) New clients: We do require a deposit for all new client appointments. We will send you a payment link at which you can make a deposit in the amount of your first visit. This deposit must be made within 24 hours of scheudling your appointment or your appointment will be canceled. This deposit will be applied to the cost of your appointment. However, the deposit becomes non-refundable 48 hours prior to your appointment. If you should cancel your appointment within 48 hours of its scheduled time, you will forfeit the deposit. As of August 23, 2021, this deposit amount is $75 and is subject to change without notice. (Please note, you must complete your client registration form online or in person within 24 hours of scheduling your appointment, or your appointment will be canceled). Note: If you call or email to schedule your appointment on the same day or next day as the appointment is set to be seen, you will be asked to make a $75 deposit to hold your appointment and this deposit is non-refundable. If you do not make your deposit within 1 hour of scheduling your appointment, the appointment is subject to cancellation.
2) Surgeries: Any surgery scheduled will require a deposit of $250. This deposit will be applied toward your surgery cost. If you cancel your pet's surgery sooner than 48 hours prior to the scheduled surgery day, you will forfeit the deposit.
Late Arrival Policy
We strongly believe in providing our clients and their pets the full attention they deserve. As such, if you are more than ten minutes late for your appointment slot, we will have to respectfully ask you to reschedule.
We understand that life sometimes gets in the way and you can’t make your scheduled appointment at My Neghborhood Vet. To help us out, it’s important for clients to give us at least 24 hours notice prior to cancelling or rescheduling an appointment. Doing so ensures that we can make the time available for another pet in need. On the 3rd cancellation or rescheduling of any appointment within 24 hours of an appointment, I understand that a non-refundable deposit of $75 per pet, per appointment will be charged.
