Pay the Vet Bill with Virtual Currency!
Bitcoin, the virtual currency that has been growing in popularity and legitimacy, is now being accepted at at least one veterinary clinic. Vetco, a vet clinic in Albuquerque, NM, was the first veterinary clinic to accept Bitcoin as a form of payment for veterinary services.
Cindy Houghton, the owner of Vetco, notes, “Albuquerque is a tech savvy city and techies have pets too! We want to make it as easy as possible for people to get their pets vaccinated, spayed, and neutered. Accepting bitcoin makes getting veterinary care even easier and shows support for the Albuquerque bitcoin community.”
Another perk? The fees associated with Bitcoin are lower than credit card fees, which saves both the clinic and their clients money.
It’s great to see that our beloved pets can join us in the brave new future!
