Payment Terms

Tropical Vets is committed to working with all clients for all pets to receive the best care possible.

We require payment in full at the time of service, consult or prior to collection of your pet from hospital, and/or upon collection of all drugs, prescriptions or other items. We accept all major credit cards, EFTPOS and cash.  

Our staff are happy to provide estimates of costs of treatment at your request, however these may vary from the final amount.

We also offer clients two options to help spread the cost of veterinary expenses.  

VetPay is a third-party credit provider specifically designed to alleviate the worry of high upfront petcare costs with a range of pre-approval options. 

Zip Pay is a popular 'buy now, pay later' option for many of our customers to help make expenses more manageable.
