Not all veterinarians offer payment plans, but some do.
And some vets are willing to negotiate payment plans on a case-by-case basis, depending on the client’s need.
If your vet doesn’t offer payment plans, ask if they accept CareCredit.
CareCredit is a financing program for medical expenses for people and pets.

Can you pay off a vet bill?
CareCredit is a health care financing credit card that can be used for people and for veterinary payment, including dental bills. If you make minimum monthly payments and pay off your balance within the promotional period (anywhere from 6 months to 24 months), then the loan is interest-free.
What does VetPay cover?
VetPay is a payment plan that lets you pay for your pets treatment over time, you pay your vet an initial deposit, and we direct debit the balance in fortnightly repayments from your nominated bank account.
What happens when you cant pay a vet bill?
If you proceed with treatment but can’t pay the bill, ask if your vet will allow you to repay it on an installment plan. If you decide to use a credit card or a personal loan to pay your vet bill, make sure you understand the debt repayment terms as well as any potential impact on your credit.
What happens if you can’t pay a vet bill?
If you receive a vet bill that you simply can’t afford to pay, your animal clinic can take your account to collections. Any balance that goes to a collections agency can negatively impact your credit. You may need to seek medical treatment right away to save your pet, and decide to consider your payment options later.
Can you get free vet care if your on benefits?
To qualify for free or subsidised treatment, pet owners must be in receipt of certain benefits, such as housing benefit or council tax support, and live within the catchment area of a PDSA hospital or clinic. You will need to bring your registration certificate with you to the clinic.
Can I get my dog spayed for free UK?

Do I really need pet insurance?
You still have to pay for regular treatment including annual jabs. If you fail to keep up with these your insurer might not pay out if you need to make a claim. Covering expensive and unexpected vet bills is the main reason people take out pet insurance.
What is the average vet bill?
