Veterinary Costs in Rhode Island

If your pet needs treatment for a broken leg, cancer or heart disease it’s going to cost thousands of dollars. And unlike human health care, if your four-legged friend needs serious treatment a vet hospital is not going to provide treatment until they receive payment.

That’s correct… until you pay your pet will not receive treatment… it’s that simple.

And to compound the issue, treatment costs are a lot higher than you’d probably expect. Here is a sample of veterinary costs in Rhode Island to give you a sense of what to expect.
