Payment Options

At Shadow Lake Animal Hospital, we provide the highest quality care for your four-legged family member. We also know that sometimes that care can be financially prohibitive. We often get questions from our clients regarding the value of pet insurance and other payment options such as CareCredit, and whether these are the right option for our clients. We strongly encourage our clients to consider medical insurance for their pets. The expense of medical care can be greatly helped by having the right insurance plan, and CareCredit can be a beneficial option as well.

Pet Insurance May make Caring For Your Pet More Affordable.

Time and time again, we’ve seen it help families take better care of their animal companions and afford life-saving procedures for their pets.

Like health insurance for people, pet policies have different deductibles, co-payments, and premiums. You should also be aware that with most policies, the pet owner must pay the vet bills in full, file a claim, and then wait for reimbursement from the insurance company.

The insurance plans we recommend are:


It’s always a good idea to do your homework prior to signing up for a plan and, as you make up your mind, consider the following questions:

  • What percentage of the bill does the company pay after the deductible?
  • Is there a physical exam required to get coverage?
  • Are there co-pays?
  • Does the plan cover pre-existing conditions and recurring medical problems?
  • Can you choose any veterinarian or animal hospital?
  • Are prescription drugs covered?
  • Does the policy pay if your pet is being treated and dies?
