Why we are different
Here is how we save you time, money, and how we are different:
Difference #1: Veterinary medicine has remained virtually unchanged for the last 50 years. Increasingly, veterinarians have tried to be all things to all people (or pets really!). More and more clinics are buying unnecessary and expensive equipment. This equipment, the staff to run it, and the training involved can easily cost many hundreds of thousands of dollars. Veterinarians know this staffing and equipment can’t be paid for by the few unusually sick patients that walk through the doors every week. The only way to absorb these added expenses is to increase the cost of basic care, such as exams, vaccinations, routine tests, and pet medications. And that’s exactly what’s happened! At Express Vets, however, we have specifically decided NOT to perform surgeries or offer other, more complex, emergency services. We have very little surgical overhead which allows us to keep our costs down. Most importantly, we can pass on these savings to our pet owners. We treat just about every non-emergency illness. We offer comprehensive care packages. We do routine vaccines, and blood work. And, we do all of this without the added costs. You can purchase any of our vaccines or lab tests individually or as part of a package. By not having unnecessary staff or hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of medical equipment we can offer most services at almost HALF of what other practices can.
Difference #2: We are not just a wellness clinic. While one of our focus areas is preventative care, we see sick patients too! We manage minor illnesses such as ear infections, eye issues, skin irritations/rashes, upper respiratory issues, and gastrointestinal issues. We can also manage chronic conditions such as diabetes, arthritis, allergies, and seizures. And, just like a regular, full-service veterinary hospital, we are stocked with a full pharmacy as well.
Difference #3: Our laboratory testing is extremely affordable and transferable to any other practice if needed for a surgical or dental procedure. We offer comprehensive blood testing, with results the very next day! This blood-work can be added as part of your pet’s annual wellness visit, or, if your pet is having a dental procedure or surgery, we can always send the results to the surgeon or other veterinarian. This offering saves time and money for our pet owners.
Difference #4: Never feel ashamed of this, because we don’t….but we are happy work with your full-service hospital vet too! More and more pet owners are saving time and money by taking their dogs and cats to Express Vets for routine service like vaccinations, wellness exams, and treatment for minor issues. But they still may want to maintain their relationship with their full-service hospital vet. We will help you keep your record complete and updated at your other vet by emailing records so that your pet’s conditions and vaccination schedules are always up to date. Also, if you bring in your pet and we notice a serious health concern we have resources to refer you to the appropriate veterinarian.
Difference #5: Finally, one of the biggest breakthroughs with our affordable service is that we can provide most pet medications such as flea, tick, and heart-worm products at a significantly reduced price. Compare our prices to other local veterinarians. In most cases, we BEAT their prices by a large margin. More importantly, we also GUARANTEE our products. Most online pharmacies do not.
