Adapted Statement from the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) on

Meeting the Cost of Pet Care

Our pets provide us with fun, companionship, and unconditional love. In return, we incur the responsibilities that go along with pet ownership, including veterinary care.

Money spent on wellness and prevention, as well as keeping pets in a safe environment, significantly reduces the risk of illness and injury. Nevertheless, pets do occasionally become sick or injured; thankfully the veterinary profession today is capable of providing virtually the same kinds of care and procedures available for people.

The American Animal Hospital Association strongly suggests that all pet owning families assess their financial situation and consider their ability to meet unexpected expenses that may be incurred for veterinary care. For some families, these expenses may be met through existing savings. Others may be able to use credit card reserves or medical payment cards. Ask at Family Pet’s front desk for information about CareCredit, which can be used to extend your payment out over 6 months interest-free. Some families should consider budgeting for these expenses, and still others may want to consider protecting themselves through pet health insurance policies.

For those considering pet health insurance, we offer the following suggestions:
