If you’re worried about the ongoing or unexpected costs for your pet, keep reading below to find out about payment and insurance options.

  • Cash

We do not routinely accept cheques. Bartercard can be used to cover professional services only.


Port Kennedy Vets accepts VETPAY which is a loan you can take out for the cost of the vet bill. VETPAY is specifically designed to help pay for veterinary expenses without the worry of high upfront costs. VETPAY allows you to pay your bill through fortnightly instalments over a 6 or 12-month term. You will be required to pay a deposit of 20% plus a 5% administration fee. Standard interest rates apply. The minimum loan amount through VETPAY is $500. To find out more, visit the VETPAY website or ask one of our friendly receptionists. You can get approval on the spot in the clinic.

If you take our pet insurance, you have peace of mind knowing that the quality of care your pet receives isn’t limited by your finances. At Port Kennedy Veterinary Hospital, we strongly encourage all pet owners to take out pet insurance.
