I am lucky that I have a vet that I have been taking my pets to for years. Because of this, I was able to get my cat taken care of by making monthly payments. I just asked if I could make payments and he said yes. However, in the front office it says payment required when service is rendered. So, if I were you and don't have a regular vet, I would let my fingers do the walking and go through the phone book and call every vet there is and ask them if they will take payments and explain that you are low income and your pet is sick. Good luck and God bless.

I've been thru my phone book in the past there are no vets in Concord NH that will except payments no payment plans no matter what I have called every vet there is in Concord and surrounding areas. Pathetic when you can't afford to pay a huge bill all at once they have no problem telling you nope sorry all of the payment or we keep your pet until you can pay your bill ,then if you can't they send your pet elsewhere to be adopted pretty sad

Have you tried calling around to the vets in your area asking for help? I did that and found one who helped me with my elderly Boxer. I cleaned kennels and walked boarding dogs to repay the vet for the discounted service, it was a real blessing to me and my old fellow.


Good luck, I hope you can find someone to help!

Check with your local animal shelter. They may know of programs that can help you.

I had a vet in Wimberley TX that took a series of post-dated checks that they deposited on the date of the check. It was a blessing, but, on the other hand, I've had vets & animal hospitals who couldn't care less!


Just depends on the humanity of the person!

Have you talked to your current Veterinarian ( you must have one ) because the Cat would have been given it's C5 vacation shots. If the poor animal is so sick ( with no disrespect ) you have wasted time posting this assistance the only person qualifed to help you is a Vet offer to pay the account on a regular basis. Veterinary Surgeons are a business the same as any-one else. Good luck.
