Insurance Options

Pet insurance works well in cases of injury and illness, whereas wellness plans cover preventative care exams and basic wellness visits.

Pet insurance premiums are typically paid on a monthly basis and can be used to help offset some of your pet’s treatment costs.

When using pet insurance, payment is typically due when services are rendered and then your insurance company will reimburse you if applicable.

If you're looking for a pet insurance provider, we suggest checking out Trupanion, Nationwide, or the ASPCA.

CareCredit

CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to help you pay for your pet’s health and wellness over time instead of having to pay for everything all at once.

Your CareCredit card can be used for a variety of veterinarian procedures, including:

  • Exams
  • Spay and neutering
  • Dental cleaning
  • Parasite control and prevention
  • Medication
  • Vaccinations
  • Surgical procedures
  • And more

“After being hesitant leaving our Furbabies alone with them going in without us, we were comforted and informed after the initial exam by the vet first by phone then at the car door when they brought out our girl back and our Boo was brought out. Prognosis and treatment and we are all home. We will recommend it to any furbaby parents.”
