Supporting the Human-Animal Bond

The doctors and staff of our Austin veterinary hospital support the belief that veterinary medicine and surgery must treat companion animals within the context of family. Special attention is given to human emotions and interpersonal relationships, focusing on a holistic approach to the family-pet-veterinarian dynamic. "Bond-Centered Strategies" are centered on respect for the human-animal bond across the life span of the relationship.

Austin Veterinary Center believes that supporting these relationships is as much a priority as providing high-quality affordable treatment for your companion family members.

Financial Commitment:

Dr. Harris and the staff at Austin Veterinary Center are aware of the importance of excellent medical and surgical care, as well as, service; especially in the tight economy of today.

Most of the medical and surgical needs of your family pets can be diagnosed and prioritized according to the most critical issues first and so forth; this is called "triage."

Dr. Harris will dialogue with you about the triage; and together decide how we can address each medical or surgical procedure needed according to their importance and your available budget for the investment in your pet's health care.

Only occasionally does a sudden life-altering event require an immediate significant financial commitment.

We offer VISA, MasterCard, Discovery, and CareCredit. Care Credit is a unique medical finance tool that allows qualified pet owners financial credit with a no interest charge, if paid within 6 months. You can apply for CareCredit on the phone at 800-365-8295, or at CareCredit.com.
