Top 5 Pet Insurance Plans Veterinarians Advise Pet Owners On

Posted by Andrew Donahey | Fri, Nov 18, 2016 @ 07:00 AM


Pet owners desire two things from veterinary practices when it comes to pet care:

  1. Efficient, fully dependable, informed care for their pets by competent techs and veterinarians.
  2. The best possible pricing and or payment plans, particularly in times of emergency.

CrossCheck knows veterinarians don't spend four years in undergrad, four years achieving a D.V.M or V.M.D., passing the NAVLE and taking the veterinarian's oath to bungle pet owner's #1 desire.

Instead, this blog article focuses on how veterinarians can help offset cost by advising pet owners on the top five pet insurance plans, and if all else fails, by offering pet owners a check processing service called Multiple Check that is equally adept at offsetting the high cost of pet care.

Multiple Check

So, you've advised your pet owner on the best course of treatment and just shared the potential costs. CLEAR! So, you've just shocked your pet owner back to life with an AED and it's time to move forward with payment. With no insurance in place, what is your pet owner to do? How do you prevent them from walking out of your practice and not giving their pet the care it deserves because they can't afford it?

Multiple Check is a check processing service that allows your pet owner to write you 2 – 4 checks to be deposited over 30 days. There is no credit check or financing charges, the funds are fully guaranteed by CrossCheck, and it allows your pet owner's finances to catch up to their outlay. Sound interesting?
