Our philosophy is that every pet and every pet owner deserves our respect and our best care. We are holistic veterinarians in that our approach to medical care emphasizes all aspects of your pet's health including physical, environmental, nutritional, and emotional factors. No two pets are alike, and no two pet owners are alike. Holistic care is much more involved and individualized than conventional care, and there is no "one size fits all" philosophy at Arch Beach Veterinary Clinic.
When you decide to entrust the care of your pet to us, we are working together to form a healthcare team.
After a thorough examination, we are
going to make recommendations on what we truly feel your pet needs. We
will make the very best recommendation, not because we want to run up a
huge bill, but because you are paying us to evaluate your pet and you
deserve to know what the best treatment option is. We would not be doing
our job to the best of our ability if we did not discuss this. We have
to charge for the services we perform, but we will not make
recommendations or perform services just to pad your bill. We will
always try to work within your budget to give your pet the best care
that you feel comfortable with.
Every pet owner has their own definition of what constitutes good veterinary care. In addition, every pet owner's budget for veterinary care is different. We understand and respect that. We are not going to make you feel guilty or accuse you of being a bad pet owner if you cannot necessarily afford the treatment we recommend.
Our goal is to ensure you are comfortable with our recommendations and treatment plan both medically and economically. Toward that end you will find that we have done whatever we can to keep fees reasonably priced on the most essential things that all pets need.
