Frequently Asked Questions

How much will treatment cost?

The specialty fee for the new patient visit is $270.00. This includes the physical exam, review of recent medical information from primary or other specialty veterinarians, discussion of our recommended treatment options, and detailed estimates for diagnostics and treatment. Each treatment plan is customized so costs will vary. We will work with you to provide an explanation of treatment options and the associated costs before moving forward with a plan.

Who will be on my pet’s care team?

Being part of a teaching hospital, we provide comprehensive veterinary care to our patients while educating our veterinary students, interns, residents, and fellows. You will meet a number of our oncology team members during your visit with the Flint Animal Cancer Center and if you need clarity about any individual’s role in your pet’s care, please don’t hesitate to ask. Our students will play an integral role in the care of your pet, but a veterinarian will always be the one to treat your animal or perform surgery.

In the case of an emergency, what do I do?

We certainly hope your pet won’t need emergency care before your appointment with us, but if they do, please seek care at your nearest emergency facility or at CSU’s Veterinary Teaching Hospital. As our profession continues to face staffing shortages, it is strongly recommended you contact the emergency facility before arrival to ensure that they can accommodate your pet. If you are hoping to use the CSU Small Animal Emergency and Urgent Care services, please call (970) 297-5000 so they can best prepare for your arrival. Please note that the CSU Small Animal Emergency and Urgent Care accepts emergency patients from 7 a.m. to 12 a.m., seven days a week.
