Insurance Options

Pet insurance works well in cases of injury and illness, whereas wellness plans cover preventative care exams and basic wellness visits. 

Pet insurance premiums are typically paid on a monthly basis and can be used to help offset some of your pet’s treatment costs. These are reimbursement plans, and they vary as to what they cover.

When using pet insurance, payment is typically due when services are rendered and then your insurance company will reimburse you if applicable.

If you're looking for a pet insurance provider, we suggest checking out Nationwide, EmbraceASPCA, or Trupanion.


We realize pet medical bills might not be in your budget and encourage our clients to take advantage of CareCredit financing rather than forego treatment when your pet needs it the most.

CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to help you pay for your pet’s health and wellness over time instead of having to pay for everything all at once.

Your CareCredit card can be used for a variety of veterinarian procedures, including*:

  • Exams
  • Spay and neutering
  • Dental cleaning
  • Medication
  • Diagnostics
  • Parasite control and prevention
  • Chronic Disease Management
  • Vaccinations
  • Microchipping
  • Emergency services
  • Surgical procedures
  • And more
