My baby is in pain and I think it's her back leg. My job is slow right now and I'm barely getting by. I can't stand to hear her cry. Are there any vets near Richmond Indiana that can take payment plans?

Thank you so much. I tried the credit care and was not approved.

I would discuss it with the vet. Maybe they would take payments. Another route would be to contact the ASPCA or the Humane Society

When I couldn't afford a vet they accepted something called Care Credit and I was able to make payments. It's easy to qualify for, and you can apply online. Logue's TLC Pet Hospital in Richmond IN takes Care Credit. I hope your baby feels better soon.

I would contact your local humane society and ask if they can refer you to someone, also you might try your local animal rescues besides the humane society as they can sometimes get cheap veterinary care. Another thing you might want to do is check out your local feed and seed store and talk with someone who works there. They are often knowledgeable about animal conditions or problems and might can recommend a treatment or direct you to someone they know who is affordable.

  1. VetBilling is a website that helps owners find vet's in their area that accept payment: https://vetbill  g-veterinarians/
  2. Ad

My sister's dog needs a vet. He has something seriously wrong with him. His testicles are swollen. He has fluids coming from his back leg and the head to his penis is swollen to the size of a golf ball. She did take him to the vet's, but the vet diagnosed him with the wrong thing and gave him the wrong meds. The fluids come from his penis when he pees, so it is not just pee. My sister really needs to take him to a vet that will do payments cause he is a very good dog.

I don't know of any that do payments, but your dog needs to go to the vet regardless.

It would be a lot easier to help if we had an idea where you lived. There are many states that now have mobile vet clinics in certain areas. Here are a few things you can try:

  1. There is a website that is dedicated to vet's who accept payment plans. You'll just need to go there and see if there is a vet in your area listed on this site. https://vetbill  g-veterinarians/
  2. Ad

  3. You can try and contact care credit. This is a payment plan for animals and many vet's will accept a Care Credit. I believe you need to set this up on the website and be approved first.
  4. Scratchpay is another friendly payment plan that you can try. Visit their site and find the information on how you can qualify for this service.
  5. Check in your area if you have an A-Z Vet near you. They also accept payment plans.
  6. Last - call vets in your area and ask if they take payment plans.

My boyfriend's dog got ahold of my little kitty today and now she has her jaw broken and needs surgery. I can't afford it and don't want to lose her or for her to live unhappy with her mouth always open if it heals by itself. The vet said it would cost up to 1000.00 at the most, but I could barely afford her bill today. Help please.

Contact your local Humane Society. The website for our local Humane Society lists several clinics that provide emergency services. Contact the clinics to see if any can work with you to discount fee or offer payments. The Humane Society site also has contact information for 5 local groups that provide financial aid for a pet's medical service. Hopefully your local Humane Society can help. It is very important that you get a broken jaw dealt with right away!!

My dog Penny, is a chi-doxie mix. She is having emergency surgery for a blocked intestine, as I am writing this. I'm waiting to hear if she is ok. She has been vomiting and not eating for 6 days. I have been to 3 vets to find out what is wrong. The charge for the services so far is $4000 and expected to increase if she makes it through the surgery.

Does anyone know a place I can apply for financial aid to help with the vet bills? I am disabled and low income. I am desperate. My car and home need repairs but I can't let my dog die without trying to save her. I don't know what to do. Thank you for any help you can give.

I'm sorry to hear you dog is very sick. I hope she is doing better now.

I think the best thing you can do is to try to work out something with your vet. Explain your circumstances and ask if he will accept a small amount each month or offer to do some work for his office to go towards paying down the debt.

As far as your house repairs go, I would contact the larger churches in your area and explain your situation and what specifically you need done to make your home livable. Organizations like these often have volunteers who mow lawns and make minor home repairs.

Your county or city social services department also may be able to assist you with daily living expenses, if you qualify. They also may be able to direct you to nonprofit agencies in your area that may be able to help you as well.

Your local phone directory has these telephone numbers and also may have a section that explains the kinds of services different government agencies offer.

Good luck, and don't give up! We're all rooting for you and Penny!

Hello Joy & Penny

There are supposed to be many organizations out there to help, try these:
1-866-4helpets
imom.org
AAHAhelpingpets.org
some of the above may be able to recommend other places.
I believe that California was one of the states that offers many assistance programs....I sure hope so anyway.
Also, if you're a member of a Yahoo! Group-try doing a search there. The Dog Whisperer Fan Club did have some links for assistance.
I'll hold your Baby in my Prayers, and I hope you both can get some much needed assistance.
Just know you're not alone. I have 3 Babies (aka dogs) and I'm disabled with Lyme Disease-final stage-and we live (no, survive on $600.00 a month) with the Grace of God.
God's Blessings t both of you. Never, never give up!

My cat Smokey is a 4 year old male and we had him fixed about 2 years ago. Smokey has been puking after he eats and it's been going on for almost 2 weeks. I really can't afford medical treatment for him and I was hoping you could recommend a vet that will take monthly payments.

Ask friends and neighbors if they know of a Vet that takes payments. Then try calling Vets and telling them about your situation. You could offer to work in exchange for treatment. Try calling animal rescue groups, sometimes they can help. In the future set aside a small amount monthly for Vet. bills. They are inevitable. Good luck.

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.

I have a 6 year old Pit. I just got her back from the SPCA and she has an ear infection. I'm on disability and I do not have any money right now to take her to the vet and with this all said and done. I know she needs to be seen so please if there's anyone that knows of a veterinarian who will take payments from a customer not having any credit or bad credit I promise with all my might with God on my side to pay back every penny. I just don't want to see my baby in pain .

You will need to call around and see what different Vets will do. My Vet has a fund for just such issues. Check with your local humane society for low cost vet care. check with some local rescues, they often know about low cost vet care. Good luck.

Took my 3 month old kitten to vet to find out she has a broken hip. She needs surgery that costs $900 or I can kill the kitten for $250. I don't have money for any of it. The only other option is to surrender her for $175 at the humane society. I don't have money for that either. It's life or death for her. I spent my rent and electronic money on her already. I won't have a home or electronic soon because of it, but I don't want to have to kill her myself because there's no vets that will do a payment plan. I can't get a credit card unfortunately I've tried, I've also tried go fund me account, and also tried petplan and care credit. I am trying everything I can just so she can keep her life. I'm at a loss.

At the moment we are in receipt of Council Tax benefit (support), but because of earning about 20 pound a month too much we will soon not be eligible. We are still only making ends meet and the fact that we were eligible for PDSA treatment for a cat we took off the street may end soon. He is 23 and has an on going heart condition which means he needs medication every day to stay alive. I just won't be able to afford, not only the medication, but also the vet bills. Never will I be able to afford all at once. I've tried getting insurance, but he was either too old or the on going heart condition makes it impossible to get him one. My question is where can I pay monthly to get treatment when necessary for my cat?

Hi Rachel. Plymouth is an especially caring area of England and you will be able to find help at any of the local cat charities there. There are so many in your area that I am posting the link to the search results instead of just to one or two of the charities.

http://www.goog  s+in+plymouth+uk

Call in or telephone them to see what programmes they can offer.

I think the only one I might avoid if I were in your situation would be the RSPCA (across the UK they are losing their formerly excellent reputation and it looks as though it might be for good reason. Your results in Devon may be different though, so give that some thought).

I hope things work out for you and yours. That universal credit benefit switch is causing no end of headaches for people from Cornwall to John 'O Groats. £20 is an awfully slim margin to be used to cut or take away people's benefits, I'm so sorry for your troubles!

From your post, I gather you live in England. I can't help with advice about a vet there, but I do want to offer some advice about your cat. I say this with all care and kindness. Please think seriously about putting the cat down. I know that is a hard decision, but the cat is quite elderly and has a life-threatening medical condition. Also, from a practical point, you have already stated that you can no longer afford its care. This really would be the best thing for your cat companion. I wish you well with this situation.

My puppy is in need of care. I think she has an ear infection and she stumbles when she walks. I think something is wrong with her back leg, too. I don't have money, but I can make monthly payments.

Answers

Call several Vets and ask about payment plans. Most have something called care credit that spreads payments over time. It does not charge interest. But you need to have your dog seen ASAP. Ear infection can affect the inner ear and destroy the balance mechanism. When it is affected it is a life sentence for the animal. It cannot be cured.

Get to a Vet now or take the dog to the humane society. You will have to surrender him but he will be treated. Some humane societies will treat you dog without surrendering him for a reduced rate. You will need to call and ask. But whatever you do, do it now. Good luck to you.
