Payment Options

Payment Options

1. Payment is expected when services are rendered. In order to focus on our patients’ needs, customer service and minimizing costs, we do not bill.

2. We accept debit cards, credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express) checks and cash. All cards must be signed by the owner of the card.

3. You may also make an online payment as well using OUR NEW MAKE A PAYMENT BUTTON at the top our website. It is a secure credit card payment program. Just click on the button at the top of the page, enter the amount you wish to pay and then follow the instructions to make your payment.

4. Health insurance coverage for your pet is affordable and will protect you from financial distress if unexpected illness strikes your pet. You will still be responsible to pay your bill but receive substantial reimbursement from your insurance carrier after they process your claim. Pet insurance carriers don’t use provider networks, so you can file a claim for our services regardless of what carrier you’re insured with.

5. When unexpected illness strikes a pet, unexpected expense strikes as well. We at Compassionate Veterinary Hospice understand this and can accommodate some financial needs through the CareCredit payment program.


It takes just 5 minutes to complete a CareCredit application, and your CareCredit account will allow you to pay for your pet’s health care over time with low monthly payments that fit easily into your budget.

CareCredit works like a credit card without high interest rates, annual fees or pre-payment penalties. You can use your CareCredit card over and over for all your pet’s health care needs, including wellness exams, vaccinations and other preventive care.

CareCredit offers:

  • Low minimum monthly payments
  • No-interest and low-interest payment plans for any treatment amount
  • No annual or other hidden fees
  • Ability to start your pet’s treatment when medically needed
