When Bosco, a 3 month old Australian cattle dog, fractured his hind leg, his mom Stephanie took him to her regular vet who estimated the cost of surgery to be around $3000. Full payment upfront was required, but Stephanie could only come up with about half that amount.
She was told surgery couldn’t proceed without the full $3000, so she looked for veterinary hospitals that offered payment plans. Stephanie found Mission Animal Hospital in Eden Prairie, MN, about an hour away.
Stephanie says, “Mission estimated the surgery cost to be about the same as my regular vet, but since they offered a payment plan through VetBilling, I was able to put half down and the rest went on a monthly plan. I could keep paying my other bills and Bosco was still able to receive the care he desperately needed.”
Stephanie’s payment plan for Bosco:
Total procedure amount: $2,219.63
Down payment: $1,527.00
Payments: 6 monthly at $201.77
Treating Veterinarian: Mission Animal Hospital, Eden Prairie, MN
