Services & Prices
We aim to offer a comprehensive range of orthopaedic surgery services, the best possible quality at the most competitive prices we can.
A very important part of orthopaedic surgery and ensuring a good outcome is the initial consultation; this is when the first assessment is made, and decisions start to be made as to how to proceed. It is at this time that your pet dog or cat is comprehensively assessed and the cause of the problem is localised. A plan is made as to which diagnostic tests or treatment are appropriate and should be considered. We will discuss our recommendations, what to expect, and how we can help you prepare for the post-operative period.
It is important that you, the pet owner, fully understand what is being proposed, and the implications of treatment / surgery, including potential outcome, possible complications and likely costs.
We allow a full 1 hour to do this important assessment properly. This means we have time to make sure we have discussed everything with you fully and are able to answer any questions you may have. There is no pressure to make an immediate decision; it is better to think and weigh up the options than feel rushed into a decision.
At Arthurs Orthopaedics your pet is always assessed by an experienced specialist orthopaedic surgeon (not a student, veterinary surgeon or specialist surgeon in training).
We make a full written report of our findings, recommendations, and procedures performed. You and your vet get the same copy of the report.
Our consultation/work-up fees are:
First consultation (1 hour as described above) – £240
Follow-up consultation (30 minutes) – £120
Typical cost of work-up of a problem including first consultation – £350-800
Typical re-examination visit (including consultation & two recheck X-rays) – £300 (most patients need at least 1 post-operative visit 4 to 8 weeks after surgery)
We offer a fixed price policy i.e. we honour the price that we give you for performing a surgical procedure or work-up. At the outset, we give you a clear all-inclusive going-home price and we don’t go over our estimate; we stick to the price we give you.
The only exception to this would be if additional problems were found or unforeseen complications occurred.
Rough estimates may sometimes be given over the telephone but a more accurate estimate will be given at the time of consultation once we are sure exactly what the problem is and what the recommended treatment is. The fees estimated below are full going-home prices with no hidden extras i.e. they include:
– Sedation, anaesthetic, monitoring and intravenous fluids
– Surgery including all surgical consumables and implants
– Post-operative hospitalisation, pain relief, and all medication
– Clear discharge instructions
– VAT @ 20 %
