Hello! On this page, you may make your deposit to confirm your appointment, and to pre-pay for telephone/Skype rechecks.
- Zelle & Venmo are the preferred payment methods for your deposit and for payment of any appointment fees. Zelle, Venmo, cash and check are the preferred methods for balance of any fees at the end of a home visit. There are 5 payment options:
- ZELLE – to confirm an appointment with your deposit, pay for an appointment, or for teleconference appointments please send payment to HAPPYPETS@YAHOO.COM
- VENMO – to confirm an appointment with your deposit, pay for an appointment, or for teleconference appointments please send payment to @SSchwartzDVM
- CASH – to pay the balance of fees at the end of an appointment.
- CHECK – to pay the balance of fees at the end of an appointment; if you don’t have a credit card or internet connection, please discuss payment of the deposit fee by check with Dr Schwartz before making your appointment.
- PAYPAL – Payment by PayPal with your credit card is offered for your convenience only and is not a preferred payment method. Please use PayPal for deposits only to confirm an appointment. To pay for home visit or teleconference appointments in full using PayPal there will be a $50 surcharge to cover PayPal fees. Please scroll down to the PayPal menus at the bottom of this page.
- There will be a $25 fee retained for cancelled appointments. There is no penalty or additional fee to reschedule your appointment with at least 24 hours notice. If paying your appointment fee in full with PayPal there will be a $50 fee retained for cancellations. We regret that these fees have become necessary due to the high cost of doing business with PayPal.
- The travel fee quoted to you when you made your appointment is the deposit required to confirm the appointment. The minimum deposit to confirm your appointment (home or teleconference) is $100. Please do not pay more than the travel fee if your payment of choice is PayPal unless you are willing to pay the $50 surcharge to cover fees.
- ***If you would like to pay your entire fee including travel + consult fee by Paypal there is a $50 surcharge to cover fees.
- Travel fees are tiered and based on travel distance and time from Orange County. Your travel fee will be quoted when you discuss your first in person visit. During the Covid pandemic, all visits will take place in an outdoor space (yard, open garage) and everyone present must wear face mask and maintain a minimum of 6ft distance.
- Telephone and Skype appointments are paid in full prior to the appointment. Zelle or Venmo are preferred; there is a $50 surcharge if you prefer to pay using PayPal.
- Please visit the Appointment Deposit and Cancellation Policy page for more details.
- Prescription refill extensions are $50 if a follow up appointment is not made before the recommended time
- Please discuss the fees with Dr. Schwartz before making any payment (below).
