At Westside Animal Hospital, we are committed to providing the highest quality of care using the best medical techniques and technologies available. To facilitate this, we respectfully request that all payments be made at the time services are rendered. This enables us to focus 100% of our efforts on delivering the absolute highest degree of patient care and client service. 

Available payment options include Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, debit card, local check, or cash. Please note – all credit and debit card payments must be signed for by the designated cardholder. 

For your convenience, we also offer CareCredit as a way to finance your companion’s medical care costs. CareCredit offers special financing and low monthly payment options, no up-front costs, and no-prepayment penalties so you can keep your pet healthy and happy.

CareCredit can be used to pay for any or all of your pets' veterinary services, from routine care to emergency visits. Highlights of the CareCredit program include:

  • Low monthly payments (3% of the total balance)
  • Interest-free payments spread out over 6 months
  • Determine approval in minutes
  • No annual fee

Applying is fast and easy. Simply visit the CareCredit website to get started or apply at our hospital, where we can call your application in over the phone for immediate approval.
