Insurance Options

Pet insurance works well in cases of injury and illness, whereas wellness plans cover preventative care exams and basic wellness visits.

Pet insurance premiums are typically paid on a monthly basis and can be used to help offset some of your pet’s treatment costs.

When using pet insurance, payment is typically due when services are rendered and then your insurance company will reimburse you if applicable.

If you're looking for a pet insurance provider, we suggest checking out Trupanion.


CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to help you pay for your pet’s health and wellness over time instead of having to pay for everything all at once.

Your CareCredit card can be used for a variety of veterinarian procedures, including:

  • Exams
  • Spay and neutering
  • Dental cleaning
  • Parasite control and prevention
  • Medication
  • Vaccinations
  • Surgical procedures
  • And more

“This place is absolutely amazing! We came yesterday for our first appointment after finding the clinic on yelp, I am so happy we decided to come to Lakeside animal clinic. The staff members were so friendly and patient, they made sure I was able to come in for a same-day appointment. I asked for some water for my fur baby and the lady in the front was more than happy to assist me. Today I received a call from them asking how Xena was doing. I can honestly say no other animal clinic has ever taken the time to check up on her or cared that much after meeting with her. Thank you so much for this great experience, we will definitely be back.”
