I can never get through on the phones. Am I calling the wrong number?
Appointments are scheduled for clients on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. On Wednesday, we offer walk-in appointments. Fox Clinic will always do its best to see any urgent care situation that comes through the doors. However, we do not always have a doctor available so it is always best to bring pet emergencies to a full service, 24-hour emergency hospital. Visit this link for a list of local emergency hospitals.
In order to offer affordable care to those in financial need, clinic fees are generally reduced by 20-30% from what can be found at other veterinary hospitals. Fees are not based on an individual’s income. There are several programs that offer further discounts to clients: the Special Assistance Fund, low-cost vaccine clinics, low-cost heartworm clinics and the Pet Food Pantry. Visit the links for additional details about each program and to find out if you are eligible.
Several payment options are offered. Cash, Mastercard, Visa, and ATM/DEBIT cards with the Mastercard or Visa logo are accepted. Because fees are discounted we are unable to offer payment plans. We will work with all clients to find the most affordable treatment for their pets.
No, the clinic is staffed with excellent, experienced veterinarians, highly qualified veterinary technicians and courteous customer service personnel. Because of the generosity of supporters, we receive donations and grants that allow us to provide affordable services without affecting your pet’s care.
Recent trends in veterinary medicine have made it more difficult for owners to afford the necessary care for their pets. Pet health insurance is a growing trend and may become an important aspect of your pet’s care. If you are on a budget, you should research the various plans and choose the right one for your needs. There are now policies that offer payments at the time of your visit, allowing you to have the pet treated without waiting for reimbursement.
The low-fee spay and neuter program is available to the general public. Click here for spay and neuter prices, forms and further information.
Yes, the clinic staff works very hard to see as many patients as possible each day. We understand the need in the community and welcome all new patients.
All pets must be restrained. Dogs should be leashed, and cats should be in a pet carrier. If you do not have a leash, please leave your dog outside with a friend while you speak to the reception staff. We will provide you with a leash. Upon scheduling your appointment, you will asked to bring a valid rabies certificate, and any previous medical records and vaccination schedules that you may have. This will help you save more money by not repeating diagnostics and vaccinations that have already been performed.
If your pet is a regular patient of the clinic, we will be glad to refill your prescriptions. There is a dedicated phone extension to request refills. This will enable you to get through the telephone system quickly. A trained staff member will return your call within 24 hours. Access the prescription line as follows: call 860-594-4503, when prompted press 88, when prompted again choose option 7. Federal Law prohibits the dispensing of prescription medications without a client-patient relationship. If you are not an existing client or you have not brought your pet in recently, please call to make an appointment. Learn more about the prescription program.
