Insurance Options

Pet insurance works well in cases of injury and illness. Pet insurance premiums are 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 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, EmbraceNationwide, or the ASPCA.


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
