Low Cost or Free Vet Care?

Are there any vets or organizations that provide immediate help with medical procedures. My dog has a foxtail in his ear and I can't afford the procedure. I took him to a vet and they want $380?

Did you explain your situation to the vet who gave you the quote and ask for a sliding scale? Some do that. Asking can't hurt.

Some larger vet practices have a free care fund that you can apply for. If you have a local animal shelter, they may be able to tell you who has that program.

Last suggestion is to set up a Go fund me type request and share your story with a picture of your pup. Then post it on social media. Be sure to link it to your bank so you can pay the bill with the funds.

That is not a bad amount to charge for this procedure as it requires anesthesia. Some Vets offer "Care Credit" to pay off a bill, but is does require a credit check. Ask the Vet if you can pay it off in 3 or 4 payments. I that doesn't work call different Vet offices and explain your situation and see if they will help.

Go to the petfinder web site for animal welfare groups in your area. Call several for advice. Their staff will be able to tell you about free or low cost vet services nearby.

Go to the ASPCA or Humane Society.
