Do you know about Care Credit?

Patients will often ask, “Do you do payment plans?” Though we do not typically structure payment plans internally, we are happy to say that we do accept Care Credit! So I’m sure the next question is “What is Care Credit?”

Care Credit is a credit card that is widely accepted at most medical facilities, including veterinary offices. The biggest benefit to using Care Credit is that it provides you with interest free financing on purchases over $200.00. In our office we can structure interest free periods for up to 12 months, depending on the amount of the transaction. The agreement requires you to pay off the total amount of the transaction before the last date of your promotional period. If you exceed the promotional period, the interest will apply for the full amount of the original transaction. It’s a great way to pay for you medical and dental needs when you don’t have all of the money up front.

How can I find out more and apply? There are a number of ways to obtain information about Care Credit. We are always happy to answer any questions and we can even help you apply, either over the phone or here in our office. You can visit the Care Credit website at, and apply in the privacy of your home, or you can reach them by phone at 1-800-365-8295. You will receive an answer about your approval status and credit limit within minutes of applying.
