Insurance Options

Pet insurance works well in cases of injury and illness. 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, Vet Direct Pay (by Trupanion), ASPCA Pet Insurance, Nationwide Pet Insurance, or PetPlan.


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 veterinary procedures, including:

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

Client Experience - Veterinary Health Insurance

Dear Dr. Foster & Staff:

I am writing you to promote our pet insurance plan. In 2010 we adopted a black lab/pitt mix (Reisling) & decided to enroll her in a pet insurance policy, and I can honestly say we are very glad we did. She is a very active, energetic & curious pup. Last year, 2011, we found her in the yard with a dead rabbit. The rabbit had ingested some rat poison. Of course this happened on a Sunday, so we took her to the Emergency vet & she also had the rat poison in her. After some treatment there, we then had a follow-up visit at Foster’s. This was a $280+ bill. Then just a few weeks ago she was not putting pressure on her left hind leg. Brought her into Foster Animal Hospital & she had torn her Cruciate Ligament (ACL) — Surgery was performed & she is healing well. This was a $1500+ bill.

Since we had the pet insurance policy for Reisling thru Pet Plan each of these incidents only cost us our deductible of $100.00 — We paid upfront (of course) & then submitted the invoices with Dr’s notes via fax. We received payment for our claims very quickly (max of 2 weeks). This company (Pet Plan) is great to work with. They have a very user-friendly website & several policy options (Coverage Plans, Deductibles, etc.). They also have a spot on their site for veterinarians to get more info about the plans offered so you can promote it to your pet owners.

Pet Insurance is definitely something I will have for all my animals in the future. I will recommend it to any & all pet owners I know — It is well worth it.

Thanks for all the care you have given our animals! - Jennifer & Chris B.

"Our family just recently moved here from California, taking our family dog in was such an amazing experience, the staff and the doctor were awesome and our family would recommend you taking all of your animals in to treat all of there needs and thank you again Foster Animal Clinic."
