Fees for veterinary services

At the heart of Lort Smith is our work to support people of limited means and our low pricing policy reflects this. Our hard work is aimed at keeping people and pets together, so on top of our low pricing policy we also provide the following discounts:

  • 25% discount on all veterinary services* for health care card holders and pensioners.
  • 10% discount on all veterinary services* for seniors card holders.

* Excludes microchips, medication, food and consumable products.

Payment plans

As well as offering a low pricing policy to keep our services accessible to more people - plus additional discounts for health care card, seniors card holders, or pensioners – we also offer payment plans to customers who are experiencing genuine financial hardship.

Payment plans can cover veterinary costs such as diagnostics, treatment, in hospital stays and surgery, and are offered interest-free.

Each plan will be assessed on a customer-by-customer basis, and will include a deposit of up to 50% of the total cost of care to be repaid. Payments are required via direct debit form a bank account or credit card, or via Centrepay. Additionally, from 2 July 2018, all payment plans will include a $45 establishment charge.

If your animal requires care, and you are concerned about the cost of obtaining treatment, please contact our customer services team on 03 9328 3021 to discuss the options available to you.

Please note, no pet will be turned away from emergency treatment at Lort Smith Animal Hospital.
