Payment InformationLearn about the ways you can pay for your veterinary care from VETSS.
VETSS is a privately-owned business and does not receive any government subsidies. The clinic is supported solely by the income it generates. Please understand that serious emergency conditions often require intensive testing and treatment, resulting in higher costs than the average visit to your regular veterinarian.
A deposit is required on all hospitalized patients. All fees are due at the time of service. VETSS does not bill.
VETSS accepts Cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Care Credit, and checks approved by Telecheck.
Financing through CareCredit®
CareCredit is a revolving line of credit designed for your pet’s healthcare needs. With CareCredit, you pay no up-front costs, no pre-payment penalties, and no fees. To learn more please visit the CareCredit website or talk to one of our staff members upon your arrival at the clinic.
