Evans Animal Hospital FAQ
There is no question too big or too small for our veterinary team. Below are some answers to our most common questions.
Where should I take my pet if I have an emergency and you are closed?
If your pet has an emergency while we are closed, please contact BluePearl Pet Hospital in Augusta at 706-733-7438. If they are unable to see your pet, please contact South Carolina Veterinary Specialist and Emergency Care at 803-561-0015 or CVETS at 803-995-8913.
Do you offer any payment plans?
Do you offer boarding?
We do not offer boarding at our facility but we are glad to offer suggestions based on clients’ previous experience. We are also happy to provide vaccine status to the boarding facility of your choice.
Does my pet need year-round Heartworm, Flea, and Tick prevention?
We highly recommend year-round preventions. Although cooler weather may decrease the prevalence of some of these parasites, our weather here in Georgia does not get cold enough for many of them to die. If you have any questions regarding which prevention is best for your pet, please feel free to call and speak with a member of our patient care team.
Can I get my pet’s medication from a big box online pharmacy?
As your pet’s veterinarian, we feel we are most qualified to dispense your pet’s medications. Most of the online pharmacy warehouses or human pharmacies are not trained in veterinary pharmacology, adverse reactions, side effects, or administration of veterinary specific medications. If you wish to use one of the online pharmacies, we will provide you with a written prescription which you will then need to pass onto them per their requirements. We do not provide phone or fax authorization to any online or human pharmacies. For more information regarding our prescription policy, please feel free to contact us.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, checks, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, and Care Credit. Click here for more information about Care Credit.
Do I need an appointment for my pet?
Yes, we are currently only seeing patients by appointment. Due to high patient volume, please allow plenty of time to get your pet an appointment for an annual wellness visit. If your pet has an emergency, please call our clinic and we will do our best to fit them in as soon as possible.
Does my pet have to have vaccines?
The only vaccine which is required by Georgia State Law is the Rabies vaccine. Other vaccines, while highly recommended, are not required. Your pet must have a current Rabies vaccine in order for us to provide non-medical services to them such as nail trims.
Why does my pet need an exam every year in order to get medication?
Most of the medications your pet takes are available by prescription only. In order for your pet to be prescribed medications, it is required by Georgia law that there is a valid veterinarian-client-patient relationship. In order for that relationship to exist, Dr. Roseberry must physically examine your pet on an annual basis. In addition to being required by law, it is good practice for your pet to receive an annual exam to check for any changes to their health, such as dental disease, which is much simpler to treat when detected early.
