Payment Policy

Payment in full is due at the time of service.  Before services are provided, a deposit of part or all of the estimated charges may be required at the discretion of the healthcare team.

Acceptable forms of payment include cash, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. Valid identification will be required for all non-cash payments. Please note that we do not accept personal checks from newly established clients.  

We also offer ScratchPay for payment plans. Visit for payment plans. View information on ScratchPay here

Sahara Animal Hospital does not do any “in-house” billing.

In the event that charges should go unpaid for services rendered, the account will be turned over to an outside agency for collection.  Should this occur, the responsible party will be liable for all costs incurred, including any additional collection fees (collection fees are generally 40% of the total amount owed) and/or reasonable court costs and attorney fees.
