A 4% service fee is applied to all sales. We do offer a full discount on this service fee to customers who pay with cash.
Pets in Stitches is a streamlined practice. Unlike a private veterinarian who provides a full medical service, we are focused on one single service, i.e. quality surgeries. Pets In Stitches performs surgery along with basic vaccinations and testing only. With our singular focus, we can better maintain our overhead costs, making it more affordable.
Please call us. Some conditions do not interfere with surgery and some do require surgery be delayed.
