CareCredit FAQs

The following are some of the most common questions our vets get about financing patients’ care with the CareCredit credit card.

CareCredit is a healthcare credit card. It can serve as a way to pay for a variety of medical expenses, including your pet’s veterinary care with convenient monthly payments.

The CareCredit card is accepted at over 250,000 providers and retail locations across the country.

The fastest way to apply for a CareCredit card is to visit their website here. There, you can see if you prequalify for a CareCredit credit card and, if prequalified, you can preview your credit limit. After checking whether you prequalify, you can either apply online at the link above, by phone or in person at our Fairlawn, NJ clinic.

Applicants must be at least 21 years of age to apply by phone (must be 18 or older to apply through other means). Applicants by phone must have a written copy of the credit card agreement before proceeding, which can be printed from or can be obtained from our clinic.

You can use your CareCredit card just like you use any other credit card! As long as you stay within your credit limit, you can use your card to pay for any veterinary expenses you may have at LACH or our online pharmacy, or other participating healthcare providers without needing to apply every time.
