If you are like the majority of Floridians, you probably have a pet…and if you have a pet, you know that vet bills can be extremely expensive. As a responsible pet owner, it is your responsibility, however, to ensure that your pet gets proper medical care, when needed. In order to register your pet (dog or cat) in Florida, they must be vaccinated and should have a check-up once a year. On top of that, pets get sick and injured just like humans do and if this happens, it can be hundreds or thousands out of your pocket. This can get expensive, but there are things you can do.
Consider Budgeting Monthly
Since you know that you will need to take your pet in for an annual check-up each year, it is recommended, if you have trouble paying, to set aside a little bit once a month. Even $10 every few weeks for a year should be enough to fully cover the cost of an annual exam and shots.
Insurance is Also Available
If you like the idea of budgeting, but anticipate a big cost for your pet in the future, like surgery, you may want to take the money you would put aside each month and instead buy pet insurance for your furry family member. Like medical insurance for people, pet insurance can help with everything from medications to major medical procedures.
Work With Your Vet on a Payment Plan
Some, but not all vets will offer payment plans in their offices. If you are having trouble paying your vet bills, consider asking about payment plans. They will generally be able to split your final invoice into payments to make it easier on your budget.
You can also choose to apply for credit when it comes to paying for vet bills. There are several companies out there that will supply credit for pet owners specifically for vet bills. However, you must have a higher credit score in order to qualify.
As you can see, there are several options that you have when it comes to paying for your pet’s medical bills. There is another option as well, and that is to utilize the services of Embassy Loans and consider a car title loan. You can get hundreds, even thousands of dollars today with no credit check.
