Payment Options

Payment Options

At American Animal Hospital we do our best to work with clients in regards to cost. We understand that pet care is expensive and that all treatment options may not be possible. Please ask your veterinarian for a break-down of pricing should there be any concerns that you may have. Payment is expected at the time in which your pet is treated or medications dispensed. Being a small business, we need to focus on the patient care and customer, and therefore do not have a billing department or the ability to bill for services. Every situation is different but there is preferential treatment given to longtime clients and their pets.

We accept debit, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, checks, and cash. We use First Data systems to convert your check into an electronic payment. Please be advised that payments will be debited out immediately.

We at American Animal Hospital know that there are times in which unexpected illness strikes and costs are incurred. We proudly offer Care Credit and Scratchpay.

Care Credit is essentially a credit card that is accepted by veterinarians and dentists nationwide. With an option like 6 months no interest, it can certainly help you financially during these tough times.

Please call one of our helpful team members to help you out, or go to CareCredit.com and apply online.

Scratchpay offers simple and affordable payment plans for large veterinary bills. Finding your payment plan does not affect your credit, takes just a couple of minutes and can be done from your smartphone, tablet or computer.

Please visit scratchpay.com to find a payment plan.

Pet Insurance

With the rising costs of veterinary medicine due to increased technology, American Animal Hospital recommends that you obtain pet insurance to cover your pet in the event of injury or illness. There are several companies to choose from. We know it can be confusing and difficult to select a plan but there are a couple websites that can help in the decision making process.
