Payment Options

Paying for Your Pet’s Care

South Loop Animal Hospital offers several options to pay for health care services. If you have payment questions, please contact us at (312) 753-5551 before your visit.

Payment is required at the time that services are rendered for all routine visits (including annual/illness exams, lab work, food and medication pick-ups).

For all surgeries and hospitalizations, a 50% deposit may be required at the time of drop-off. The remaining balance will be paid upon the animal’s release.

We accept the following payment types:

  • Cash
  • Check
  • Visa

Please note: there is a $25 fee for all returned checks. We are unable to accept held or post-dated checks.

If you are concerned about the cost of your visit, we will gladly prepare an estimate for you.
