What we will not do:
- Prescribe medications without examining your pet within the past year for chronic conditions or the past month for acute conditions
- Perform unnecessary tests or vaccinations
- Write or approve prescriptions for the cheapest internet pharmacy. Many internet pharmacies are not regulated and supply expired, dangerous, fake, or otherwise unsafe medications. Prescriptions will be approved only through our clinic website, 1-800-Petmeds, or DrsFosterSmith.com.
- Maintain the lowest prices in town. The lowest prices in town align with the lowest quality in town. We want to take the best care of your pet, not the cheapest. You get what you pay for in the veterinary world.
- Return phone calls or emails during non-business hours.
2. We accept debit cards, credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express), and cash. All cards must be signed by the owner of the card.
3. When unexpected illness strikes a pet, unexpected expense strikes as well. Finan Animal Hospital understands this and is able to make some special arrangements through the CareCredit program. It takes just 5 minutes to complete an application and will allow you to break down your payment into 6 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 at: www.CareCredit.com.
Highlights of the CareCredit program:
- Low Monthly Payments (3% of the Total Balance)
- Deferred Interest For 6 Months
- Determine Approval in a Few Minutes
- No Annual Fee
Insurance For Your Pets
We are happy to accommodate you regardless of what pet insurance company you use. Pet insurance companies usually have you, the pet owner, pay the bill up-front at the vet’s office. After your visit, you submit the paid receipt and a claim form to the insurance company. They will review the claim and issue you a check.
We are big fans of Figo Pet Insurance – https://figopetinsurance.com/
