CareCredit can be used for your pet’s routine exam, emergency surgery, or any other visit. At Best Friends Animal Hospital, we encourage all pet owners to apply for a CareCredit account to meet all of their pet’s financial medical needs. CareCredit works as a regular credit card that can only be used for medical reasons. With its low interest rate, no hidden fees, and low monthly payment, it’s the best option for your pet’s medical needs! To learn more about CareCredit, please visit their website.

Pet Health Insurance Plans

Best Friends Animal Hospital encourages owners to cover their pet through a pet health insurance plan. The policy holder pays a monthly premium to the insurance company, which then provides reimbursement to the holder for medical and surgical care the pet has received at Best Friends Animal Hospital. Unlike human health insurance, the veterinarian is not involved in processing claims; therefore there are no co-pays or worries about veterinarian participation in your pet’s plan. Insurance is “accepted” everywhere because the contract is strictly between the pet owner and the insurance company. We encourage you to explore your options before you purchase pet insurance for your dog or cat. The best decision is to choose a policy early in your pet's life, while they are healthy.
