As pet owners, we want to provide the best healthcare for our beloved pets. But sometimes the associated costs for these services can be over-whelming, especially in times of financial distress. We can help. We offer solutions that work for you, and your pet.
The Veterinary Care Foundation
The Veterinary Care Foundation (VCF) is a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation that helps veterinary practices fund their hardship cases. The foundation’s criteria for use of donated funds include such situations as:
- Good Samaritan cases
- Owners experiencing a financial crisis
- Elderly clients facing financial issues
- CareCredit denied clients
- Support for local service animals
- Local disaster relief
CareCredit offers Special Financing and low monthly payment options, no up-front costs, and no-prepayment penalties so you can keep your cat healthy and happy. Applying for CareCredit is easy. Go to www.carecredit.com and fill out an application, or contact us at any of our locations and we’ll walk you through the process. If you prefer to apply over the phone, you also call them toll free at (800) 677-0718.
Pet Insurance (trupanion.com)
Similar to human health insurance, pet insurance helps provide peace of mind in case the unfortunate should happen. Its purpose is to help cover the costs of unexpected accidents and illnesses that may occur in the future. Unfortunately, it will not cover any current conditions your pet may have which are known as pre-existing conditions. This means that the ideal time to insure your pet is as early as possible so that anything that happens in the future will be covered.
When your insured pet becomes sick or injured, you take him to the veterinary clinic for treatment. You then submit your invoice along with the pet health insurance claim form to be reimbursed at a percentage, less your chosen deductible.
Pet insurance is helpful for those who want to provide their pet the best medical care possible with less worry about cost. It helps provide financial peace of mind and can help pet owners with the difficult decision of treatment vs. ‘economic’ euthanasia.
You can sign up your pet(s) by going to trupanion.com and simply filling out the quote form and selecting your custom deductible to decide on the right premium for you. If you prefer, you can also enroll over the phone by calling (800) 569-7913.
Flexible Payment Plans
An ACH option that allows you to pay automatically from your checking account or credit card. You pick the date and amount of your monthly payments. PaymentBanc is a no interest service that we can provide with a very short and simple application process.
