Chisholm Trail Pet Clinic, Inc.
Although we take both the patient and the pet owners' needs in consideration when developing treatment plans, the reality is that the clinic must be managed as a financially healthy business. This is the "hard side" to the daily rewards of providing quality veterinary services to our clients.
We are not subsidized by any governmental or private grant monies. We do not have a non-profit organization status. Our facility and site are financed locally and were are not subsidized by any economic development funds. Our supplies are not donated. As a privately owned small business we pay property and income taxes, and receive utility service from the city of Bowie at the standard commercial rate.
We are staffed by professional individuals who are paid for their work and contribute their earnings to our local economy. No non-paid volunteers assist in the care of our patients. The only exceptions are junior high and high school students interested in veterinary medicine who may volunteer for observation for short periods of time and our open invitation to students attending a College of Veterinary Medicine who may choose to spend their externship rotation with us.
Payment is expected in full when services are rendered.
The clinic accepts payment in the form of cash, personal checks, credit and debit cards, and CareCredit.

If your check is returned, it may be re-presented electronically or by paper draft and you will be responsible for any and all penalties, costs and incidental damages, collection cost and taxes on any check that is returned.
