Payment & Insurance | Sarasota Veterinarian | Southgate Animal Hospital

Payment & Insurance

We accept credit or debit cards, cash, and checks. Note that payment is due at the time of service.

We also accept certain third-party payment plans, such as Care Credit. And, we can help you file paperwork for your pet insurance.

Pet insurance can be a worthwhile investment for many pets — especially young, healthy pets — that saves you money over the long-term.

When you come for your dog or cat’s appointment, be sure to ask us about it. We can let you know if it’s a good fit for your pet, and which companies may be best for them (there are lots of different plans and options out there).

Note that pet insurance works differently from human medical insurance. Most plans require you to pay for services up front, and then they reimburse you later.

So, be sure to plan for payment at the time of service, and we’ll help you get the receipts and paperwork you need for filing with your pet’s insurance company.

We also offer several discounts –

  • Military – 20% off services only, with photo ID
  • First Responder – 10% off services only, with photo ID
  • New Client – FREE first exam (limit 2 pets per household)
