With years of experience providing consumer financing solutions for veterinarians, UGA is now proud to be partnered with a veterinary college where veterinary professionals oversee the care of 16,000 animals a year. This partnership has brought new payment options for families to afford care for their animals.

After providing an in-house payment plan for many years, the University of Missouri Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH) wanted to increase financing options available to avoid having to turn away clients who did not have the available funds necessary to pay for their animals’ medical care. The hospital’s partnership with UGA has been able to provide a perfect solution.

“Now that we have UGA on our side, our clients and prospective clients don’t have the stress of worrying how they will pay for care their animal needs added to any anxiety they may already have worrying about their animal’s health,” said Dr. David Wilson, Director of the VMTH. “Our staff, freed from the time commitment involved in arranging financing, is better able to focus on providing excellent customer service.”

With UGA on their side, the VMTH and UGA have offered nearly 400 clients financing during the last 10 months for many treatments and procedures that were not only necessary to improve quality of life for the animals, but in many instances were lifesaving.

Dr. Wilson noted that UGA’s financing program alleviates the problems families face when their pet encounters a medical emergency that is unexpected and expensive to treat. “They have a choice now instead of being left with one option – to put the animal down. Many people don’t have credit cards or pet insurance, nor do they have money set aside for treatment, and UGA financing is an option that fits their situation.”

When medical treatment is necessary, the last thing clients want to worry about is financing. Since UGA is a non-traditional financing company, more clients, some of whom have previously been denied financing through more traditional lenders are finding their applications for financing approved.
