"Four years ago my cat, AJ, was diagnosed with diabetes and put on insulin. A year later, he was diagnosed with kidney disease. Since then it has been one thing after another. For months, he was at the vet clinic every three to four weeks as we tried to find out what was wrong with him. His vet finally recommended I take him to an internal medicine specialist. I knew it would be expensive and there was no possible way I could afford it. But I also knew that I would do absolutely anything to keep my boy with me. I scoured the Internet looking for other options and stumbled upon CareCredit's website. I applied online and was immediately approved. My prayers had been answered--AJ would get the treatment he needed. Today, AJ is doing well and just celebrated his 15th birthday. I don't know what we would have done without the support and care we received from his vets, and without the help we received then--and continue to receive today--from CareCredit. Bless you for being there when we needed you." --Margaret L., Arlington, Texas
