We ask that all fees are paid for at the time of consultation and all operations are paid for at the time of collection.

We accept cash, credit and debit cards, we do not accept American Express.  We regret that since the cheque guarantee scheme has closed, we are no longer able to accept cheques.  We can take payment over the phone with a debit or credit card, or you can use our online payment portal.

Please be reminded that payment is required at the time of treatment.

If your account is left outstanding without prior arrangement with the Practice Manager, an administration fee of 20% of the total will be added to your invoice.

Failure to settle outstanding accounts within a reasonable time will result in referral to a debt collection agency and legal proceedings which will result in a County Court summons. 

Charity vouchers from Cats Protection or RSPCA can help towards the cost of neutering or large bills. This help is completely discretionary and up to the charity, not Acorn House.

Reception can provide charity telephone contacts for you.
