Value Vets Limited aim to provide the highest standards of veterinary care. These are the terms on which we supply veterinary services and related products to you. These Terms and Conditions shall apply to all supplies of Veterinary Services and Products by us to you to the exclusion of all other terms and conditions. Please note that some aspects of these Terms may not be relevant to you and we suggest you ask for further clarification from us if required.
1.1 We shall ensure that all Veterinary Services are supplied by suitably qualified staff, taking into account the nature of the Veterinary Service to be supplied in each instance.
1.2 Wherever practicable and on your request, a treatment plan for the supply of Veterinary Services will be agreed with you following an initial consultation and in advance of any further treatment. This treatment plan will, as far as is practical, include an estimate regarding the likely costs of the course of treatment in such plan. In an emergency we reserve the right to provide such Veterinary Services as are reasonably necessary, in the professional judgement of the veterinary surgeon providing the Veterinary Services or other appropriate staff, without first agreeing a treatment plan.
1.3 Please note that any estimate given can only be an approximation of the costs of any treatment required. If our original estimate looks as if it will be exceeded, then the Veterinary Surgeon responsible for providing the Veterinary Services will discuss any increased fees with you before any further procedures are undertaken (save in the event of an emergency and at the professional discretion of the relevant Veterinary Surgeon acting in the best interest of your pet).
1.4 We will endeavour to provide veterinary services in accordance with reasonable standards denoted by the RCVS guidelines for practice standards (www.rcvs.org.uk) and the professional conduct of veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses. All Veterinary Services shall be supplied in accordance with normal professional standards.
1.5 Veterinary Services shall be supplied during our normal business hours which can be found elsewhere on this website. At our discretion we may arrange for Veterinary Services to be supplied at various locations and at other times. In an emergency a veterinary surgeon will see you outside these opening hours, but this service will carry an extra charge.
1.6 We reserve the right to decline to supply Veterinary Services at our discretion. You are free at all times at your cost and subject to the payment obligations in these terms and conditions, to seek a second opinion on or concerning any Veterinary Services provided.
2.1 In the event of any defect or failure in any Product our liability to you shall be restricted to replacing the Product or refunding the price paid by you for the Product.
2.2 You acknowledge and agree that all Products must only be used in accordance with the instructions supplied with them or issued orally by the Veterinary Surgeon providing the Veterinary Services or other members of our staff. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the use of any Product, you should consult the Veterinary Surgeon providing the Veterinary Services or other members of our staff for clarification.
2.3 Any Products supplied by us shall be of satisfactory quality, fit for purpose expressly agreed by the Veterinary Surgeon providing the Veterinary Services or other members of our staff and shall comply with any description given. All other warranties, expressed or implied, are hereby excluded.
3.1 All Veterinary Services and Products provided by us shall be charged to you in accordance with our then current price list, a copy of which is available on request and which is subject to change without notice. If you have any question as regards the level of charge that will be incurred you should consult our staff for clarification.
3.2 Our normal practice is for payment to be made by you at the time the Veterinary Services or the Products are supplied, either at the end of the consultation, the discharge of your pet or upon collection of the Products. All invoices must be settled in full on receipt of the invoice. We may at our absolute discretion agree that you may delay payment of an invoice pending recovery of the sum from your insurer for such reasonable period as we may agree in writing. You remain liable in full for all invoices and all sums shall become due and payable in full by you at the end of this extended payment period irrespective of whether your insurer has made payment to you.
3.3 We may, on occasion, choose to accept direct insurance claims at the discretion of our Branch Manager. A direct insurance claim is one where you do not pay us; rather we claim the money directly from the insurance company. In the event that all or any part of the insurance claim is not paid by your insurance company for any reason you will be liable for the outstanding balance.
3.4 We may refer overdue accounts to our debt collection agency.
3.5 In the event that any invoice or other sum owed is not paid when due then, without prejudice to any other remedies available to us, we may at any time:
3.5.1 add additional charge(s) to your outstanding account in order to recover fees and costs in connection with the collection of the sum owed (including but not limited to administrative costs and debt collection agency fees); and
3.5.2 issue notice to you that no further Veterinary Services and/or Products will be supplied to you.
3.6 All prices quoted are quoted inclusive of value added tax or other indirect taxes, duties or levies which shall be added as appropriate.
3.7 If you are unable to pay for the Veterinary Services we are only obliged to fulfil our minimum legal responsibilities and professional obligations in respect of your pet.
4.1 We carry professional indemnity insurance in the sum of £150,000 for criminal or disciplinary action, £5m per claim for human injury, £250,000 domestic pet (“Insured Sum”) for any single claim. We supply Veterinary Services and Products to you on the condition that our liability for any loss, claim, cost or expense arising out said supply shall not exceed and shall be limited to a maximum of the Insured Sum.
4.2 If you wish us to assume a level of liability greater than the Insured Sum then we shall so agree on condition that:
4.2.1 you so request in writing; and
4.2.2 we are able to obtain insurance cover for said higher level of liability; and
4.2.3 that you pay in advance to us the additional premium incurred by us in respect of the additional cover.
4.3 Nothing in these terms and conditions shall:
4.3.1 exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury caused to a human being;
4.3.2 render us liable for any indirect or consequential loss (including, but not restricted to, loss of profit or loss of savings) which liability shall be excluded to the maximum extent permitted by law.
5.1 It is our intention that all our clients should be satisfied with the Veterinary Services and any Products supplied. In the event that you are dissatisfied with any aspect of the Veterinary Services or Products supplied by us, please refer to the “Feedback” page elsewhere on this website.
6.1 We may advocate pet insurance, but any contract of insurance is between you and your insurer. Please ensure that you refer to the terms and conditions of your insurance policy.
7.1 We will use the personal information you provide to us to:
7.1.1 provide the Veterinary Services and Products;
7.1.2 process your payments for the Veterinary Services and Products; and
