Clients may also wish to get an estimate of costs prior to their appointment and are very welcome to do so by calling reception at Channel Highway Animal Hospital (03 6229 7939).  Either an approximate cost can be given over the phone for that procedure or if they desire, a more formal estimate can be emailed usually within one business day if they are seeking pre-approval for insured pets. It is important that the client realise that this is an estimate only as cases may vary in length of surgery time or complexity that may alter the costs.
