The Cost of Veterinary Care

"They're all about the money these days" is a very demoralising taunt hurled at many vets currently. Demoralising because we all work extremely hard and very long hours to do the very best for our patients. Checking hospitalised patients through the night or being called out to an emergency at 3am is not something we do just for the money. Treating wildlife casualties who cannot pay for themselves - how is that all about the money?

We do it because we care. We care about our patients and we care about our clients.

We'd all love to be able to work for free, but we all have bills to pay and AlphaPet is a business which needs to make a modest profit to allow us to continue to invest in new equipment and staff. As a financially viable business, we are then able to continue to offer value for money pet healthcare 24/7.
