Payment and insurance options

Providing flexible payment options to ensure your pet has access to exceptional veterinary care.

Payment for veterinary services

The University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, Sydney receives no subsidy for its veterinary services. The charges at the UVTHS are comparable to those of private veterinary practices and are kept to the minimum level possible that is consistent with the highest quality of care for the animals being treated.

Our policy requires a 50% deposit of the estimated treatment cost for all admissions into hospital prior to any diagnostic investigations and treatment. Full payment of the remaining balance is required at the time the animal is discharged from hospital. Payment methods accepted:

Gap Only

You simply pay the gap (the difference between the vet’s invoice and the claim benefit under your policy) and go.
