Lakewood Animal Hospital

Hospital Policies

We value your experience at Lakewood Animal Hospital and ask that you kindly adhere to our policies to best support you, your special pet, and our medical team.

Payment Policy

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

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

When unexpected illness strikes a pet, unexpected expense strikes as well. We understand this and are able to make some special arrangements through our CareCredit program. After completing a quick 5 minute application, you will be able to break down payments into 6 monthly installments. Apply at our hospital or online now!


On Tuesdays, we offer discounted services to senior citizens and local area rescue groups. Pre-approval is required to qualify for the rescue group discounts. Please call for more information!

Payment Options

We accept payment via:

  • Cash
  • Check
  • Debit
  • Credit (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, and Visa)
  • CareCredit

To continue to provide the highest quality services utilizing the best medical technologies, we request payment be made at the time services are rendered. All cards must be signed by the card owner.

Estimates are provided for all surgeries and hospitalizations. If you have not received an estimate, you are welcome to request one at any time.
