How to save on vet bills in Natchitoches, LA

Get pet insurance

Pet insurance is a great tool to save on vet bills. Most plans are significantly cheaper than human health insurance, and reimburse 80%, 90%, or even 100% of your vet bill after the deductible is met.

Try Pawlicy Advisor's pet insurance comparison tool to instantly analyze your pet and find the best savings. Learn more about how pet insurance works or see a vet's perspective on pros & cons.

Schedule preventative care visits

Proactive, preventative care is an important part in keeping vet costs low. Being proactive in scheduling vet appointments sooner rather than later can catch health issues before they become bigger problems that need expensive treatment plans.

If you're a new pet owner and haven't been to the vet before, here are some tips for your first vet visit.

Other options

If you have expenses for pre-existing medical conditions and need help financing the cost, many US vets work with treatment financing solutions like CareCredit. These payment options will help you space out your payments over time, so you can afford any large unexpected upfront costs.

Alternatively, you can try Pawlicy Advisor's "grant finder" tool to see what charities might be able to help you afford vet care.

Frequently Asked Questions From Natchitoches Pet Owners


What happens if you can’t afford a vet?


If you can’t afford the vet, you risk not being able to provide critical medical care and potentially even forfeiture or euthanasia. Caring for a dog or cat is a serious responsibility. To protect yourself against the unexpected, please consider pet health insurance in Louisiana. There’s also veterinary charitable grant programs you might be eligible for.


Can you just walk into a vet in Natchitoches?


It really depends on whether or not they’re already booked up for the day, and if the reason you’re “walking in” is an emergency. There are some clinics in Natchitoches that specifically take walk-ins, but in general you should always call ahead. If they can’t take you, they might direct you to an animal ER.
