Ways To Pay
To keep our prices low and make helping more pets possible, payment is due at the time of services. However, we know with some services that is not always possible. PETS Clinic accepts all credit cards, debit cards, cash, and we offer three 3rd party monthly payment plans along with the ability to fundraise on FB for sick, injured, or hospitalized pets.
CareCredit helps you pay for out-of-pocket healthcare expenses for you, your family, and even your pets! Once you are approved, you can use it again and again* to help manage health, wellness and beauty costs not covered by insurance.
Scratchpay offers flexible payment plans with no hidden fees or prepayment penalties. Pet owners can choose a payment plan that works best for their budget and pay off their balance over time. In addition to providing financing for veterinary care, Scratchpay also offers pet insurance plans.
Good credit or no credit, Varidi provides customers with payment plans right fit for their budget. This can be applied for within the clinic before a procedure or expense is incurred.
