We at Northshore Animal Care feel that transparency is key. This especially true when it comes to charges. Some clinics draw you in with prices given over the phone then will try to upsell additional treatments and services. In many cases these additional treatments are needed such as heartworm prevention, flea/tick medications, and annual general care. These prices may not have been included when talking with them over the phone and most will not publish their prices. We try to break away from this and publish our prices for most of our routine products and services. If you need a price but do not see it here, please call and we will do the best to help.
