Owning a pet can be expensive! Last year, Americans spent about $104 billion on their pets, including food, products, services, and veterinary care. The majority of pet owners consider their four-legged friend a member of the family, and they will do anything they can to provide their pet with the veterinary care they need.
At Anasazi Animal Clinic in Gilbert and Chandler, we understand how both regular medical check-ups and unexpected emergency situations can take a toll on our clients. We are proud to be part of the group of vets that take CareCredit as a payment option.
What Is CareCredit?
CareCredit offers an alternative option to pet insurance if that is not an option for your family. CareCredit is a credit card that can be used to pay for any health and wellness services not covered by insurance. You can use CareCredit to pay for health services for your human family members as well as veterinary services for your pets.
What Can I Pay for Using CareCredit?
Vets that take CareCredit will accept it as a payment for both routine and emergency veterinary procedures. You can use CareCredit to pay for:
- Annual check-ups, teeth cleanings, vaccinations, and microchipping
- Treatment for pet diseases, chemotherapy, and rehabilitation
- Prescription pet foods you buy from your veterinarian
- Emergency pet care
- Surgeries, including spaying or neutering
How Does CareCredit Work?
Applying for CareCredit is easy—it only takes about five minutes. You can apply online, through the CareCredit app, or by phone. You can also stop by the Gilbert location of Anasazi Animal Clinic and we will walk you through the process. CareCredit will instantly let you know if you qualify for credit or not. Once approved, you can use your CareCredit card to pay for your veterinary fees.
CareCredit does not have an annual fee, and it works much like a typical credit card. You can use the monthly payment calculator on their website to find out what your veterinary service payments would total each month. CareCredit offers a variety of payment options—some with interest, some without—depending on how much you charge to your card, and how long it takes you to pay off the full amount.
