Financing Pet Health Care: Caring for Pets without Breaking the Bank
Lawndale Pet Hospital believes that pet owners should be able to provide for the health care of their pets without breaking the bank. We will work with you to determine the best means of financing for your pet’s continued care.
We are strong believers in pet insurance as a means of helping pet owners. We understand that when facing illness or injury in a pet, families want to provide the best possible care, but also have to stay within their own budgets. Pet insurance provides a means to do just that.
Different plans offer different kinds of protection, and it can be confusing to sort through all of the options. We have a handout that breaks down and compares nine different insurance companies to clearly show what they offer and to highlight their strengths and weaknesses. You may also find these resources helpful:
- The Veterinary News Network developed a video that discusses things to consider when evaluating pet insurance companies.
- Doginsurance.com offers excellent general information on prices, companies, and plans.
If you have any questions about pet insurance, please do not hesitate to ask our helpful staff. Our goal is for you to be able to cover the cost of your pet’s care without inflicting a burden on your family’s finances.
CareCredit is a means of paying for medical bills on a monthly basis. It is similar to a credit card where the low fees allow pet owners extended time to cover costs incurred. Our staff is happy to help you with the paperwork to open a CareCredit account or to answer any of questions.
Scratch Pay offers simple and affordable payment plans for veterinary bills. Apply for Scratch Pay and check your interest rate any time without affecting your credit score. Completing the application and accepting the loan terms takes just a couple of minutes and can be done from your cell phone or computer. Our staff is happy to help you with the application process.
In addition to accepting all types of pet insurance, Lawndale Pet Hospital accepts:
- CareCredit (see above information)
- All major credit cards
