Payment Options

We accept the following payment methods: cash, personal check (with proper identification), VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Care Credit.  Some clients may qualify for billing through VetBilling.

When unexpected illness strikes a pet, unexpected expense strikes as well. Lake Road Animal Hospital understands this and recommends the following:

Care Credit

It takes just a few minutes to complete an application, and if approved, allows you to make monthly payments with no interest for six months. You can complete an application at our office or online.

Highlights of the CareCredit program:

  • Low Monthly Payments (3% of the Total Balance)
  • Interest Free For 6 Months on purchases over $200.00
  • Determine Approval in a Few Minutes
  • No Annual Fee


VetBilling is a payment option that allows you to make biweekly or monthly payments on a balance over a period of 9 to 12 months.  Not all clients will qualify for this option, and there are restrictions and fees associated with this payment option.

Insurance For Your Pets

Pet Health Insurance is available, and is beginning to grow in popularity with clients.  Be aware that there are several options available, and you will need to assess your individual situation to ensure that you choose a health insurance plan that will benefit you and your pet.  For example, do you want health insurance to cover only accidents and illnesses, or are you looking for a plan that can reimburse you for preventative care?

Trupanion offers flexible deductible options, a free 30 day trial, and the ability to have eligible invoices paid directly to your veterinarian (eliminating the need for you to pay out-of-pocket and await reimbursement from your insurance company). However; they do not offer preventative care coverage.

Embrace Pet Insurance offers a preventative care coverage that even includes grooming and training.
