For payment options, we accept all major credit cards, including American Express and Discover, as well as cash. We also accept checks from clients that have an established payment history at Steeplechase Veterinary Hospital. Therefore, if it is your first visit, you will need to pay with either a credit card or cash. The payment is due at the time of the visit.
We never plan that our pets will get ill, and do our best to keep them healthy, but that isn’t always in our control. For example, imagine coming home from work to find your pet has gotten into something and is very sick. So you rush them to Steeplechase Veterinary Hospital.
At that time, the only thing you should have to worry about is getting them well again. The staff and doctors at Steeplechase Veterinary Hospital may know what your pet needs to get better, but they cannot do this at their own expense, as much as they might desire to help.
For this reason, we now accept Care Credit. This payment option using extended-payment financing. Applications can be completed and submitted for approval at our hospital, or you can apply online at www.carecredit.com. Care Credit offers no down payment and no interest if paid in the allowed time frame. You can visit the Care Credit website for details.
And lastly, we also are strong proponents of Nationwide Pet Insurance. Their Whole Pet with Wellness plan offers you the ability to combine virtually all of your pet’s expenses into a simple monthly payment. Our clients that partake of this are inevitably grateful for our recommendation. In addition, we love the fact that we can give your pet the best chance of a fast and successful recovery.
Although there are many pet insurances out there, Nationwide’s new Whole Pet with Wellness Plan offers the best bang for your expenditure and covers even routine healthcare such as dentals (as often as you want), vaccinations (whichever ones you choose) and even routine labs (even if it’s just for your piece of mind).
