We are committed to providing a high-quality veterinary service to all our clients. Should we not meet your expectations on any aspect of our service please inform us in writing, within four weeks of the event.

Payment is due at the time of treatment, unless otherwise arranged with staff. We accept payment by cash, debit/ credit card (except American Express) or bank transfer.
All fees, diets and drug charges are subject to Value Added Tax (VAT) at the current rate.
Late payment or non-payment:
Should an account remain outstanding, a reminder will be sent.
After due notice to you, normally 90 days, overdue accounts are automatically transferred to external Debt Collection Agency, Waters & Gate, who will add their charges to the debt.
We will provide a written estimate as to the probable costs of a course of treatment. You accept that any estimate given can only be approximate and does not include any emergency procedures, follow-up treatment or investigations. We will provide ongoing updates on costs as required. You accept that you are liable for all costs incurred in the treatment of your animal.
Campbell & Galloway supports the principal of insuring animals against veterinary fees arising as a result of unexpected illness or accidents. We are happy to submit insurance claims on behalf of clients for patients under our care, however it is the client’s responsibility to maintain contact with the insurance company throughout the claims process, and to update the practice accordingly.
It is the responsibility of the client to settle any outstanding account balances resulting from a partial insurance payment. If a direct claim has not been settled in full within sixty days from claim submission, it is the client’s responsibility to settle the full balance.
We offer a courtesy reminder for annual vaccinations and parasite control reminders, by either email or letter. However, it is the owners sole responsibility to ensure that they remain up to date with these services.
We do not offer a reminder service for puppies/ kittens second vaccines. An appointment for the second vaccination should be made at the time of the initial vaccine.
As a registered veterinary practice we prescribe “Prescription Only Medicines” which means we are required by law to see patients to be able to prescribe most medications.
We will need to see patients every 3-6 months minimum for ‘Repeat Prescription Checks’ – this is a legal requirement.
Abuse and Tolerance Policy:
We have a zero tolerance policy about abuse towards our staff
Any abuse or aggressive behaviour towards our staff or other clients will result in withdrawal of services. This will be communicated to you by letter, and we will allow 30 days in which time you may seek alternative veterinary services.
Ownership of clinical records:
Case records including (but not limited to) radiographs and similar documents are the property of, and will be retained by Campbell & Galloway Veterinary Practice. Copies will be passed on request to another Veterinary Surgeon taking over treatment of the patient concerned.
Campbell & Galloway Veterinary Practice provides clinical experience for veterinary and veterinary nursing students, on placement from university. You accept that students, acting under appropriate supervision, may be involved in the examination and care of your animal.
