What are Exam Fees?

An exam fee is the cost your veterinarian bills you for your pet’s appointment or physical examination.

How Exam Fees Work

Exam fee costs will vary depending on your location and what is performed during the appointment. Specialists, such as a dermatologist or cardiologist, or emergency veterinary exams tend to be more expensive than a general or routine veterinarian visit.

Key Takeaways

  • The typical exam fee varies based on location.
  • Specialists or emergency veterinary care fees can be more costly.
  • Pet insurance can reimburse you for exam fees related to an unexpected accident or illness.
  • A wellness add-on to your pet insurance plan can reimburse you for routine exam fees.
