Stockton Vet That Takes Payments?

I have a 6 - 8 year old female Dachshund, she is the love of our lives and is in need of help. She has a large growth that has rapidly grown in the past month on her stomach and it's frightening to see. I'm afraid of it bursting by the size of it. I have looked around and every place keeps telling me she isn't worth the trouble to get fixed or the payment is way too high for my mediocre budget. I don't want to loose her over this and with how in pain she is, I'm afraid for her life. I don't want to get her put down neither.


I am unemployed and disabled, it's rough seeing her in this condition. So my question is: Does anyone know of a vet in Stockton, California who will provide services for a very small amount of cash during the first visit. I am willing to make payments, but they won't be much until I get my disability checks each month.

Veterinarians devote many years and often have substantial debt from training in college and medical school. They then must pay for their clinics, staff, etc., and also have to live and pay their expenses like the rest of us. So, there are very few "low-cost" vets and few take payments. You can call vets in your area, however, most, if not all, will not accept payments.


Recently, my husband and I faced an extremely difficult decision-our sweet and wonderful kitty of 14 years had a cancerous tumor that would have cost at least $15,000 to remove and with no guarentees. We are both retired and I am disabled. We have few resources and little money. We had to euthanize (kill is such a difficult word!) our kitty and will always miss him. This is something you may face, also.

It is important to know what you face in medical costs to treat your little dog. Then you will know what your options are.

Check with your local animal shelters. They may have some resources for you to check out.

Anyone who told you your dog wasn't worth fixing should be ashamed. I would guess your dog has a mammary tumor. Sometimes they can be fixed. Keep calling until you find a Vet who will help you.


Call your local humane society and any dog rescues you can find. They sometimes know of discount services. I am so sorry you are in such a tough spot. I hope something helpful turns up. Be sure and let us know.
