We accept several types of credit cards, cash, checks (run through Telecheck as an automatic draft), and have Care Credit available.
Care Credit is a credit card specifically available for health care needs. It typically allows you 6 months of interest free time to pay down the amount but after that period there is a steep interest charge (of course check with any updated materials they may have for you to review). We have many clients that have been happy using this option when unexpected emergency costs arise. They can give you a decision over the phone or on the website within a few minutes.
The site to apply for Care Credit is: http://carecredit.com/vetmed
We also strongly recommend our clients consider pet health insurance to help cover unexpected costs and some that now help cover preventative care as well. Nationwide now has what looks to be a great plan for pets! There are several other companies as well, such as Trupanion, which we have successfully worked with as well.
