Extremely expensive but there is no alternative so they can pretty much charge what they want (and they do). Expect at least 3X normal vet charges. Very focused on estimated charges throughout care which we found disturbing. What are you going to do? Unhook your pet from the IV and run? Maybe some people do? Care was excellent with some caregivers more compassionate than others. Many thanks to those individuals. We chose to wait a few more hours after recommended emergency surgery for blockage. Blockage worked it's way out on its own fortunately and surgery was not necessary but had we said okay to the surgery when they first called, it would have been a very different story. Bill was over $1200 for less than 24 hrs of care so I'd expect with surgery it would have been a $3000 to $4000 bill. I wrote this review because having them tell us at least 6 times in less than 24 hrs what our estimated charges were made us feel like they were too focused on the many dollars they were making and not our pet but to be fair, our pet was treated well. If our pet got sick again, we'd have to grin and bear it...there is no alternative besides heading to WSU. I'd give them 4 stars if they had not been so focused on "giving us an estimate." If Pet ER reads this, you might want to think about being a bit more reasonable in your cost so your clients don't feel like they are being taken advantage of when they're down for the count...thanks.

If you have an emergency what else are you going to do but pay a fortune? At least we have somewhere close by to go now if disaster strikes in the middle of the night. And that??s usually when it happens. The facility seems very nice.

when its an emergency its always expensive. I found a dog that had been hit by a car, I called & we took the dog right in. We got lucky the dog had been mirco chipped so we found the owners right away & the surgery needed to save him was done.
