Payment Options

Payment is expected when services are rendered. In order to focus on our patients' needs, customer service and minimizing costs, we do not bill.

We accept debit cards, credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express) checks and cash. All cards must be signed by the owner of the card.

We are excited to announce that we now accept Bitcoin!

If you aren't familiar with Bitcoin, click the logo above to learn more about this innovative payment option!

When unexpected illness strikes a pet, unexpected expense strikes as well.  La Costa Animal Hospital understands this and is able to make some special arrangements 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 either apply at our hospital (where we'll call in your application over the phone for immediate approval), or apply yourself online prior to your appointment at:  La Costa Animal Hospital's Care Credit page.

Highlights of the CareCredit program:

  • Low Monthly Payments (3% of the Total Balance)
  • Interest Free For 6 Months
  • Determine Approval in a Few Minutes
  • No Annual Fee
