Financial Assistance & Resource Information
We require full payment at the time that services are rendered. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, CareCredit, Cash, and personal checks. However, we understand that life happens and unexpected or costly veterinary services can be stressful and challenging. Estimates are provided to you upon request as a courtesy. Please disclose any financial constraints to us prior to any services being rendered. Unsatisfactory financial history with us, such as failure to pay for services rendered or failure to disclose cost limitations prior to receiving services, may require payment up front or an appointment booking deposit for all future services.
Unexpected illness or injuries to your pet can cost thousands of dollars. That’s why you should consider pet health insurance. It reimburses you for unexpected veterinary expenses, so you’re financially prepared to protect your pet—and your wallet. With pet insurance, you elect and enroll your pets into a plan. You must pay for your veterinary services up front in full, then contact your pet insurance company for reimbursement. Here are our favorite pet insurance providers:

Personal Fundraising & Crowdfunding
GoFundMe is an American for-profit crowdfunding platform that allows people to raise money for events ranging from life events such as celebrations and graduations to challenging circumstances like accidents and illnesses. You can also post your GoFundMe link on any website to gather more visitors to your fundraiser.
Create a Facebook fundraiser to raise money for a friend, nonprofit organization, or yourself. Share your fundraiser with friends, get donations, and reach your goal. You can share the link to your fundraiser on local groups and public pages to share the word and collect more donations. Facebook fundraising has fewer fees than GoFundMe and has the potential to reach more viewers.
We recommend reaching out to friends and family for support. If you borrow privately, you won't have to worry about compounding interest, payment fees, loan deposits, or the potential to be sent to collections.
You are allowed to have monetary credits saved to your account. You may make payments or a deposit to your account at any time to save up for a service. Additionally, people can make payments or donations to your account. They will need your first and last name and your pets name so that we can verify the payment is going to the correct account.
