Payment Options

For your convenience you can now pay your invoice from our website

The Michigan City Animal Hospital receives no support from charitable organizations or the government; therefore prompt payment assures maintenance of a well-equipped facility and well-stocked facility for the medical care your pets deserve.  All services must be paid at the time of service. We accept:

  • Cash

  • Major Credit Cards

  • Care Credit

  • Scratchpay

  • Checks *

*Checks are electronically scanned, pre-authorized and deposited by a third party processor. The third-party processor will occasionally decline checks if they do not fit certain criteria. Therefore, please have a backup payment option available.  If your check was declined, contact Cross-Check at (800) 552-1900 to find out why.


Likewise, future deposit (held checks) are an option but require a 30% down payment by check due the day of service and a second check for the remaining 70% to be deposited within 60 days.  Again, the third party processor has certain criteria they use to approve or decline checks, therefore have a backup payment method available.  We suggest Scratchpay.

Pet Insurance

We highly recommend pet insurance to help with the unexpected.

A minimum of 50% deposit is required for all surgeries and/or hospitalization at the time of admittance to the hospital.

In order to help you provide the best care for your pet, we offer convenient deferred payment options. Use the links below to learn more about either of these plans and to apply.

Get care now, pay later.

We proudly accept Scratchpay to help you finance your pet's healthcare needs. Go to Scratchpay to find a payment plan for immediate pet care. Checking your plan options does not affect your credit score. You can check now before your appointment, then finalize on the day of services.
