Helps more pet parents finance veterinary care across the country
Costa Mesa, Calif. – May 30, 2017 – CareCredit, a leading provider of promotional healthcare financing, today announced a multi-year agreement with PetVet Care Centers, a dynamic hospital network on the leading edge of veterinary care. Through this agreement, CareCredit will be the provider for pet owners seeking financing options for veterinary care at the more than 100 PetVet general, specialty and emergency hospitals around the country.
More than ever, pets are considered members of the family, and keeping them healthy is a priority, said Doug Hammond, senior vice president and general manager for CareCredit.
That’s why CareCredit is committed to helping pet parents get the optimal care for their pet, should an unplanned – or planned – health expense occur. Through this partnership, veterinarians within the PetVet hospital network can help their clients finance the care their pets need, with convenient monthly payments to fit their budgets.
CareCredit data shows that the availability of financing options plays a key role in healthcare decisions, especially for pet members of the family. According to CareCredit Path to Purchase Research, 59% of those surveyed researched the veterinary treatment/procedure and 50% researched costs and finances.
CareCredit aligns perfectly with PetVet’s vison to help pets receive the best care when they need it to live long and healthy lives, said Gino Volpacchio, chairman and chief executive officer of PetVet.
Our agreement with CareCredit will give our clients flexible payment options they can use for all their pets’ needs, from surgery to wellness visits and everything in between.
CareCredit is recommended by the American Animal Hospital Association and is widely accepted by veterinarians across the United States. Currently, more than seven out of every 10 veterinary practices in the U.S. accept CareCredit.
