As pet owners, we want to provide the best healthcare for our beloved pets. But sometimes the associated costs for these services can be over-whelming, especially in times of financial distress. We can help.

We offer solutions that work for you, and your pet.


Payment Options

Payment is due at the time services are rendered. At Lakeside Animal Hospital we accept numerous forms of payment, including credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express) debit cards, cash, Scratchpay and Care Credit. We are also happy to assist with submitting claims to your pet’s insurance company.

Pet Insurance

Similar to human health insurance, pet insurance helps provide peace of mind in case the unfortunate should happen. Its purpose is to help cover the costs of unexpected accidents and illnesses that may occur in the future. Unfortunately, it will not cover any current conditions your pet may have which are known as pre-existing conditions. This means that the ideal time to insure your pet is as early as possible so that anything that happens in the future will be covered.

Each insurance plan has their own coverages, deductibles and pricing, so we suggest you do a little research before purchasing the plan which is right for your pet or pets.

While we are happy to work with any Pet Insurance carrier, we primarily recommend the following:
