Convenient Payment Options
for Veterinary Care Services
Payment is due at the time services are rendered. Personal checks are not accepted; though we are happy to accept all major credit cards, debit cards, and cash payments. The Animal Hospital by the Sea accepts the following major credit cards:
- American Express
We also accept payments from both the Citi Health Card and CareCredit. Both of these programs offer six-month interest deferred payment plans to pet owners for qualifying transactions. Please visit their websites and contact us for further details.
Veterinary medicine continues to become more and more advanced, a fact that can cause optimal care to quickly become expensive. In order to more readily provide the best possible care for your pets, we strongly recommend that owners consider purchasing pet insurance for their animals.
While pet insurance can be a real benefit to you and your pets, it is important to remember that it works a little differently than people health insurance. The company usually requires the owner to pay for care at the time of service with reimbursement made to the owner later, after records are submitted. Prior to enrolling your pet in a new program, most companies will require you to provide copies of your pet’s medical records. We will be happy to assist you in getting the records required.
There are many pet insurance companies available, with new ones constantly being created. The American Animal Hospital Association offers a pet health care payment guide for deciding if pet insurance is right for you, and the following are two non-biased online references to help you sort through the differences between pet insurance companies
The following is a list of several of the larger pet insurance companies that you may want to check out:

- ASPCA Pet Health Insurance
- Pet’s Best Insurance
- PetFirst Healthcare
- Trupanion Pet Insurance

Animal Hospital by the Sea rocks! Jean is a fabulous veterinarian, the environment is warm and relaxing and there is great communication between Jean and her staff. We are all so very happy to have found them!
—Jodi Starcevich, Matt Costello, Groovy Roux and Salinger
Dr. Dieden’s surgical technique allowed our dog a quick and trouble free spay recovery without the stress and discomfort of an Elizabethan collar (head cone). We are very grateful to Dr. Dieden and staff who assisted with Rena’s surgery.
—Bob and Jayme Holmberg
Meshuggeneh was the most relaxed cat during her visit to Dr.Jean that I think she would have stayed longer. Thank you both Holly and Dr. Jean for your time and help. Best find in Langley... a great vet!
Jean and staff Thank you so very much for the care given to our Lab, Lily We are so appreciative of your time, concern and love given to our pet. Lily is forever grateful and so are her humans, Nina and Chris We hope the next visit will be just the standard check up and not an emergency, again thank you for the excellent care. Animal Hospital By The Sea, you rock!
Dory a Golden on the island says thank you.
The staff and Jean are fabulous. We are so lucky to have them on the Island.
Thank you Dr Jean Dieden for taking such good care of my labrador, Kinsey. Kinsey had a raging hot spot. Thanks to Dr Dieden’s caring and effective treatment, Kinsey is much more comfortable and on the mend.
It doesn’t get any better than this animal hospital for care for your pet. Jean Dieden and her team of Holly and Stacy are top notch and they are genuinely caring. I also like the fact that this is a animal hospital and part of that terminology means they do their own blood work.
Dr. Jean held my hand throughout it all and, had it not been for her professional intuition about a prescription Lena was given during emergency treatment, my little girl would not be the happy, healthy kitty she is today. As for how my other cat Dexter feels about Dr. Jean, you can see for yourself around this website.
