When unexpected illness strikes a pet, unexpected expense strikes as well. Ridge Road Animal Hospital understands this so we partner with the CareCredit program.

Insurance For Your Pets
Another popular option for your family and pet is insurance coverage. To learn more, we highly recommend that you research the various insurance plans that are available.
Pet Insurance Basics
Most pet health insurance plans have a few basics in common.
- You usually pay a monthly premium
- You select a deductible amount that is either per incident or annual
- You select a reimbursement level or co-pay percentage
- You can go to any licensed veterinarian
- You pay your veterinarian first and then are reimbursed after filing your claim
There are also substantial differences between companies. These differences often impact if your claim is covered, or how much you get reimbursed after a veterinary visit. It’s important to do your research to make sure you are choosing a plan that protects you financially.
