We understand that affording veterinary care for pets can be a worry for some people, so at Castle Vets we work closely with many local and national animal charities to try to provide support for people who may not be able to afford veterinary fees.

We strongly recommend that you insure your pet if possible. Emergencies and unexpected veterinary bills can occur at any time or pets may develop long-term conditions which can entail many repeat visits to the veterinary surgery. Appropriate insurance cover means your pet will get the best care without the cost of treatment becoming a limiting factor.
