We understand that serious medical issues and accidents often happen unexpectedly and each individual pet owner has different ideas about what is an acceptable level of healthcare for their pets. At The Hope Center, we will present you with all of your options regardless of the costs involved. It is our professional obligation to inform you of all possible treatment options. It is also our obligation to inform you of the costs associated with those treatments which is why we will provide you with written estimates after discussing treatment plans for your pet. We understand that every family has a budget and we strive to work with you to achieve optimal outcomes and the best possible healthcare for your pet. We will never judge a client based on their willingness or ability to pay for advanced diagnostics and treatments. It is imperative that veterinarians and clients have honest conversations about expectations and if finances are a problem that issue can be identified early in your visit and can be addressed.
We never want finances to be the only factor in your decisions about the health of your pet. We believe that with a combination of prudent planning, informed choices, and financial guidance and assistance every pet can receive the level of care that their family desires. At The Hope Center we work with veterinary insurance plans that provide reimbursement for services, and also accept every major credit card as well as health cards such as CareCredit. These cards provide funds specifically for healthcare services and applications can be submitted during the time of your visit. The plans vary in repayment structure and approval rates.
Planning ahead of time for possible medical conditions is the best way to provide the highest level of care for your pet. Pet insurance is available from a variety of providers with different levels of services and options. We encourage every owner to research and choose a plan that best fits their needs. In addition, understanding what conditions your pet might be predisposed to, either through breeding or lifestyle, can make you aware of symptoms earlier and able seek care more quickly. By identifying a disease process or condition early, outcomes can be improved and medical costs can be minimized. Take the time to discuss conditions to watch for with your primary vet.
