Pet ownership can wreak havoc on families... And can be a major source of stress and financial burden.
Especially in the event of an emergency when you may have to decide on forking over thousands of dollars out of pocket, or potentially making a tough decision to euthanize your pet.
Scenarios could include:
Health issues such as diabetes
And even urinary problems
These are not cheap to diagnose, or treat.
Pet owners may find themselves unexpectedly paying for:
Initial intake/ exam
Dental cleanings/ extractions
Taking time off work
I have seen numerous occasions where an owner either can't, or won't spend the money to save their pet's life and elects to euthanize instead.
One specific incidence was when their dog was diagnosed with diabetes. The cost of insulin was just too high for them, and they elected to euthanize.
It absolutely broke my heart.
I just want to be the one to say;
THERE IS HOPE.
Your pet's life doesn't have to end just because of high dollar signs.
Some financial options include:
No interest financing for 6 months with PayPal Credit (loan)
PayPal Pool (donation link to share with family or on social media), NO FEES- unlike GoFund Me.
Asking your vet for a payment plan (many veterinarians understand medical care is far from cheap, they may work with you on monthly payment plans)
Apply for Care Credit (a line of credit specifically for care of pets)
