Payment Options

Paying For Your Pet’s Care

We know billing can be a sensitive, personal matter, and that’s why our pay structure is designed with you in mind. We understand that cost of care must be a factor in any decision involving pet health care. At East Central Veterinarians, after your pet’s examination, we will review a treatment plan, including associated costs, for your pet’s individual health plan. At ECV, you are in control of your pet’s treatment; we promise to provide the level of health care that each owner has chosen.

We want paying your bill to be manageable and have payment options to fit your needs. If you need help, we’re here for you.  We accept cash, credit/debit card (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express), Scratch Pay, and Care Credit. We also offer Wellness Plans, these plans can be customized for your pet’s individual wellness needs and allow you to make convenient monthly payments.

Unfortunately, ECV cannot issue refunds for unused medications once the items leave the hospital.



Scratchpay is not a credit card and does not require a credit check and thus does not affect your credit score. It’s a way to pay for the costs of many treatments and procedures and allows you to make convenient monthly payments. The process from application to decision takes only a few minutes. You can apply at home or at our clinic.


Care Credit

CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed for you and your pet’s healthcare needs. It’s a way to pay for the costs of many treatments and procedures and allows you to make convenient monthly payments. Care Credit only allows authorized users the ability to use the card, thus they require you to show two forms of identification at the time you use the card. If you are sending a family member or friend to ECV to make a payment on your account please make sure you have contacted Care Credit to make them an authorized user.
