Payment Options

Payment is expected when services are rendered. In order to focus on our patients’ needs, customer service and minimizing costs, we do not bill. If you are unsure of the cost of services, please ask us for an estimate and treatment plan before we begin any procedures for your pet. Missed appointments will be charged an exam fee.

We accept the following payment methods:

  • All Major Credit Cards
  • Scratchpay
  • CareCredit®
  • *Pet Insurance – Payment is made by owner to Neartown Animal Clinic, then owner is reimbursed by pet insurance company.

    “We now offer Scratchpay to make financing easy for everyone! With higher approval rates, friendly terms, and a simple application process, Scratchpay lets you get the care you need now and worry about payments later. Learn more at”

Scratchpay has recently released a brand new payment plan called Take 5. With Take 5, Scratchpay is approving more applicants than ever before. Best of all, Take 5 plans have 0% APR, no deferred interest, and zero hidden fees. Next time you’re at our practice, feel free to ask us about Take 5 to see if it’s the right option for you!”

When unexpected illness strikes a pet, unexpected expense strikes as well. Neartown Animal Clinic understands this and accepts payment through CareCredit. It takes just 5 minutes to complete an application and will allow you to break down your payment into interest-free monthly installments. You can either apply at our hospital, where we’ll call in your application over the phone for immediate approval, or apply yourself online.

Highlights of the CareCredit program:

  • Low Monthly Payments (3% of the Total Balance)
  • 6 Month & 12 Month Interest Free Plans
  • Determine Approval in a Few Minutes
  • No Annual Fee
