    Testimonials and Reviews

    I use CareCredit for my dog's vet bills. Recently my 5-year-old golden was diagnosed with cancer and the chemotherapy treatments are expensive. CareCredit has allowed me to give my dog the treatment to, hopefully, make her better and to keep her around longer and happier! I couldn't have done it without CareCredit. Thank you!

    I would like to start by saying thank you CareCredit. My dog got hurt at about 1:00 a.m. in the morning and had to be rushed to the emergency vet. I did not have any money (with me) and they would not see my dog unless I paid the visit fee plus the fees for x-rays. I was so emotional. They gave me the option to apply for Care Credit and I was approved... My dog was able to get the medication that he needed for his hurt leg. I am so thankful that this was an option for me.

    Congratulations! My horse, Finn, will be turning 30 this year! I don't know what I would do without my CareCredit card when it comes to keeping Finn healthy. I have sung your praises to many pet owners & working for an Equine Vet, I passed on information Re: CC . I have yet to use CareCredit for myself, but I plan on doing so this year. Thank you, again. When we blow out the candles on Finn's 30th birthday cake, we will cheer you on! Kindest regards, Finn & Vicki

    CareCredit has been there on more than one occasion for me, my husband and my almost 2yr old daughter. I got in a car accident last yr. that made it so I couldn't work for 8 plus months. CareCredit allowed me to be able to still take care of much needed medical attention to both my dental needs and our dogs' care. We are still struggling trying to get life back in order, but having CareCredit gives me a little peace knowing its one less thing to worry about.

    They say 40 is the new 30. My new 30 began last July. My wife surprised me with a gift that loved me back. A Olde Bulldog whose name is Bubba Lunchbox. He is a handful, but with CareCredit his medical bills are easy to handle and very stress free.

    Having CareCredit was a lifesaver for our family. Our new puppy had been injured by another dog and was sent to a University Hospital for emergency surgery. Had it not been for CareCredit I don't know what we would have done. He is now almost 1 year old and is as happy and healthy as ever.

    My cat Austin had gotten very sick and was in desperate need of emergency veterinary care. It was literally a lifesaver that I had a CareCredit account. I was able to conveniently finance the care and medications he needed to survive. I have recommended CareCredit to my friends and family for their healthcare and veterinary needs. Thank you.
