Which Dog Care Credit Card is Right For You?
Vet bills can be costly, particularly if your pet becomes sick or injured, leaving your wallet empty and creating undue stress. Luckily, there are options available to you that can ease this burden and ensure your furry companion receives the care they need.
At Pure Paws Veterinary Care, we take great pleasure in offering flexible financing options for the health care of your pet. These include CareCredit – North America’s premier client payment program designed specifically to cover pets. CareCredit allows you to say yes to necessary vet care without breaking your budget over time with monthly payments that fit comfortably within your budget.
As you select a credit card to cover your pet’s care, it is important to remember that not all cards are created equal. A rewards card that offers cash back on items like pet supplies, grooming services and boarding may provide significant savings while promoting health for both of your furry companions.
Here are a few of the best pet care credit cards that will cover all your dog’s needs, such as medical emergencies or unexpected costs. When combined with pet insurance policies that will protect against unexpected costs this option may prove especially useful.
If you’re uncertain which card best meets your needs, consult your veterinarian or use the CareCredit provider locator to find an accepting veterinarian. Inquire also if there are clinics or hospitals near your location offering low-cost or no-interest payment plans; some community or shelter clinics may even offer these options free of charge which could make an excellent alternative.
CareCredit is the nation’s premier pet care credit card. Their network consists of more than 24,000 veterinarians and 225,000 service providers; most accept CareCredit as payment; however if there’s one you particularly like calling ahead is always best!
As with other credit cards, CareCredit uses the borrower’s credit score in making its decisions regarding approval or denial. All three major bureaus (TransUnion, Equifax and Experian) offer credit scores; those from their past two years of history will also be taken into consideration as eligibility criteria. A veterinary insurance policy and any other forms of payments made are also taken into consideration to help decide on approval or denial decisions.
