I need some vet help, but I can't afford any payments until next month and I'm not sure my dog will live that long without help. My dog got into the trash and I think he swallowed a bone so now he's bleeding out of his rectum.
I just got laid off my job and my unemployment barely covers my rent. I'm not sure I can take the heartbreak of my dog passing away. He's a good boy.
Call your regular vet (or other vets listed in your area) and see if he/she can help, given the circumstances. I have found that it never hurts to ask, especially when it involves one of my family. Good luck and try!
Another mention about the Care Credit card. I applied the Humane Society I go to and had the card in less than 30 mins. You can apply online. Since your not working, perhaps someone can help you out with a co-signature if need be. Call you local humane society, perhaps can give some resources that can help you out. Your dog needs to be seen asap.
Go to humanesociety.org for a list of assistance programs.
I am not a vet, but as a pet owner whose cat eats all sorts of weird stuff here is some advice:
1. If the blood is bright red and only a little bit, it is less of a worry. Bright red means the blood is coming from damage to the skin or right around the anus, like a human with a burst hemeroid. Keep an eye on it, it should stop in a couple days.
2. If the blood is black or a constant flow, you should look up emergency vet services, and get you dog there immediately. Many of them will do payment plans, at least the ones around me do.
Also, contact your local human society, sometimes they have help for people who cannot afford vet services on their own.
Please just go to your vet and get your baby checked out and then when the bill is presented tell them your situation and make payment arrangements with them and stick to the agreed payment schedule. Be humble! I can't imagine any vet that would hold your baby hostage simply because you couldn't pay all at once after the service.
You can apply GE's credit card, Care Credit, it pays for vet bills, optical and dental. Good luck. I've been there. I have three dogs, and I don't know what I'd do without any of them.
Sounds like bone cutting his return, I no you didn't give dog bone,But that's reason they don't won't people giving them any bones especially chicken then splinter in them & cut like glass,Please call Animal control or Humane Society hope they will help. Poor baby gotta hurt him. Please,please try something. Cookie 17

I just got back from vacation of 10 days. I picked up my chiguagua and she is throwing up and pooping blood. I really need to get her seen. I'm a United States air force retired and terminally ill. I really need to find a vet that will accept payment plans.
