Financial Assistance Information

When unexpected veterinary costs arise, we want to help keep pets in homes by offering you several creative payment solutions.


Payment Plan Options

CareCredit is an alternative payment option that helps you pay for out-of-pocket expenses by extending special financing options to you that you can’t get when using your Visa or Mastercard. CareCredit allows you to make smaller reoccurring payments without interest – this gives you more flexibility than having to pay a large lump sum for services.

Scratch Pay is a payment system that offers 0-12 month repayment plans for as little as 5.9% APR. This simple, two minute application process can make the high cost of pet care more manageable. We got you and your pet covered.

Financial Assistance For Low Income Families

SPCA Tampa Bay Veterinary Center is proud to offer the Caldwell Keeping Families Together Fund. This income-verified discount program is available to low income families that are not eligible for CareCredit or Scratch Pay. This fund is supported by generous donors in the community that want to help keep pets in homes. Items not eligible for discount are medications, food and vaccines. If you would like to donate toward this fund to help keep families together, click here.
