PetSmart Vet Prices, Hours, Appointment
Office visit prices range from $45 to $65 for dogs and cats, depending on location. Additional services such as vaccinations, microchips and dental care are chargeable, plus the cost of any prescribed medication.
Spay/neuter services run from $180 to $300 depending on species and bodyweight. The pricing takes into account the dosage for anesthetic and usually includes a 1-week follow-up appointment.
Banfield offers wellness plans, which work in a similar way to pet insurance but there is no payout. Instead, the monthly costs cover the basic treatment a pet may need throughout the year, such as general health check-ups, vaccinations and parasite prevention treatment.
PetSmart opening hours are typically 9 am – 9 pm, with veterinary hours running 9 am – 6 pm. Appointments are made via Banfield’s website, over the phone or in-person at the store.
Veterinary care within PetSmart stores has been provided by Banfield pet hospitals since 1994. To date, Banfield occupies over 850 of PetSmart’s 1,600 stores. As of 2018, PetSmart began advertising for new veterinary clinics in 188 stores that do not currently offer veterinary care.
PetSmart has no administrative control over the running of the veterinary clinics. They are simply the leaseholders of the clinic space.
The only major service that PetSmart veterinary care does not offer is overnight care, however, there is no oversight from PetSmart. All medical care is run by the veterinary clinic. Any pets requiring overnight care must be referred to a standalone Banfield clinic or other nearby veterinary clinics.
How much does it cost for microchipping?
Microchipping costs are $35-$40 with Banfield pet hospitals. Microchipping is a quick and painless procedure to implant a rice-grain-sized microchip under the pets’ skin. This microchip holds the owner’s name and contact information in the event the pet is ever lost or stolen.
How much does it cost to put a dog to sleep at PetSmart?
End-of-life care is something pet owners never want to think about, but it is important to plan for.
At PetSmart’s Banfield vet clinics, euthanasia services cost between $50 and $1oo depending on the species, plus any additional bereavement services, such as cremation. In all, the total cost of euthanasia is expected to be $175 – $300 at PetSmart.
This is more cost-effective than other private practices who may charge in excess of $200 just for the euthanasia medication.
If you have a Banfield wellness plan, arranging end-of-life services at a PetSmart Banfield clinic can get you a further discount. If you have pet insurance, your policy may cover some end-of-life costs.
