"My beloved bulldog, Phinneas, was 6 years old when he was diagnosed with pneumonia and a heart condition. The veterinarians were fearful that he wouldn't make it, that he'd go into cardiac arrest and die. They promised to do all they could and after four days in the intensive care unit, Phinneas made a seemingly miraculous recovery. Phinneas is now about to turn 8. He is no longer on heart medication and, aside from checkups every three months, he has stayed away from the hospital. CareCredit allowed me to finance a portion of the medical bill, and I pay it with gratitude every month. Coming up with this amount of money at a moment's notice is not always an option. CareCredit helped me get the necessary care for my four-legged family member." --Jennifer C., San Francisco, Calif.
