In order to maintain our high standard of service, we require that payment is made at the time services are rendered. We provide estimates for all surgeries and hospitalizations. If you have not received an estimate, you are welcome to request one at any time for your expected charges.
Striegel Animal Hospital is happy to accept:
CareCredit: When unexpected illness strikes a pet, unexpected expense strikes as well. Striegel Animal Hospital understands this and accepts payment through the CareCredit program. It takes just 5 minutes to complete an application and will allow you to break down your payment into 6 monthly installments. You can apply yourself online at ww.CareCredit.com/apply.
Scratchpay: Getting help with an unexpected veterinary bill has never been easier. Scratchpay leverages online data to quickly assess risk, determine a credit rating, and assign appropriate interest rates. Upon approval, your vet is paid and your pet gets the care they need. There are no hidden fees or retroactive interest charges – just simple, affordable options for pet owners in need.
VetBilling Payment Plan: Longstanding Striegel Animal Hospital clients now have the option of signing an agreement to pay for services rendered. To qualify for this service the following requirements must be met.
- “Longstanding” means your pet must have been seen at least once within the past 13 months, you must have had at least 3 appointments with a veterinarian at Striegel, and your first appointment at Striegel must have been at least 13 months ago.
- You must be willing to have a soft credit check run and have a qualifying score. This type of credit check will not impact your credit.
- There is a $25.00 processing fee that must be paid with a credit or debit card at the time the agreement is signed. There is a convenience fee of $3.00 on each payment towards your outstanding balance. There are no interest charges or additional charges if the terms of the agreement are kept.
- You must be able to pay 50% of your bill at the time of service. The remainder can be placed on the payment plan.
- Payments plans can only be created for amounts greater than $100.00, and not more than $1000.00.
- You must be willing and able to pay 10% of the total amount due each month. For example, if your payment plan was for $400.00, you would need to pay a minimum of $43.00 each month until paid in full (10 months). $40.00 to meet the 10% minimum and $3.00 for the convenience fee.
- Payments must be made via savings, checking, or credit card accounts and must be scheduled to occur at least once each month.
- You must schedule a meeting with our Practice Manager who will complete the soft credit check and create the payment plan.

How Pet Insurance works: The client pays their bill in full at the time of service. Striegel Animal Hospital will provide the client with an itemized invoice that the client is responsible for submitting to their Pet Insurance provider. The Pet Insurance provider will reimburse the client if they deem that the treatment is covered by the insurance plan.
