Payment Options FAQs
My pet is injured/sick, and he/she needs to see a veterinarian. However, I can’t afford the office visit, much less treatment. What can I do?
Many veterinarians who see a pet on a regular basis are usually willing to work with the owner to come up with a payment plan. This is one of many reasons why it’s a good idea to keep up with your pet’s routine care. Owners whose pets don’t receive regular veterinary care will have a harder time finding a veterinarian who is willing to provide services without guaranteed payment. Contact your veterinary hospital, and ask if they offer any alternative payment options.
Animal Medical Services offers CareCredit financing.
If budgeting is important for you, you may want to consider Trupanion pet health insurance. This can greatly reduce unexpected bills.
Do you offer any payment plans?
Without pre-approval of this financing option, we request that you pay for services provided at the time of your pet’s in-hospital or farm call visit. We do accept major credit cards, as well as veterinary insurance plans, which can help cover many routine and emergency services. We highly recommend Trupanion Pet Health Insurance to reduce unplanned expenses from illnesses.
We recommend that you include the cost of veterinary care in your annual expenses. However, we understand that this sometimes isn’t possible. If you contact us ahead of time, we can help you determine ways to keep costs down and stay within your budget. For instance, some preventive veterinary care can be spread out over several visits. Your veterinarian will work with you to come up with a cost-effective plan to keep your pet current on vaccinations and other necessary services.
If you have any questions about our payment policy, please feel free to ask.

Can I get health insurance for my pet? If so, what’s covered?
Several companies offer health insurance for dogs and cats (and other pets). These plans have premiums and deductibles, just like human health insurance plans. The premiums and deductibles vary based on the level of coverage you select. Many routine services, such as office visits and diagnostic testing, are covered, as well as prescriptions, procedures, and surgeries for a wide variety of diseases and conditions. However, there are restrictions and limits, as well as certain guidelines to follow, including making sure your pet receives regular preventive care.
