RESOURCES TO HELP PAY FOR VET CARE
Hi everyone, I just found some links to organizations to contact to help pay for Vet care when we're not able to afford this on our own.

Please look at the top right hand side of this page, you'll see the top logo is for 'discussions' thats the page we are on.
The logo directly below reads 'health pages' where we have a wealth of information.  Here's a link to the topic 'resources to help pay for Vet care' the site gives a number of websites to contact.

This is a great reminder, Opus.  I think it might deserve a sticky note.  Wonder why you and I don't have that ability?  We'll have to ask.

Awesome-thanks!! Especially for those of us with unfortunately limited financial resources, every little bit helps; our pet's health is so important so it's good to know there's assistance!

I would imagine the chronic posters a few yrs ago...Savas, Mrs Savas, dominosarah, ZQ, PrettyKitty! and April2 (those are just the people I can remember...and in no particular order, lol) all contributed to the current health pages.  Thanks to everyone!

I'm surprised the group P.A.W.S. isn't on there? I've gone to them for spaying/neutering. They use slide scale pricing and work with local vets to get you a deal. I think I paid $20 to neuter my Beckett boy. Now it is the new kitten's turn to get neutered! Maybe he'll calm down some afterward... LOL!

I'll have to educate myself on P.A.W.S. since I'm not sure what that is.  Thanks for suggestion.  

Joy...you have the prettiest children.  Your youngest is too adorable...and I mean, really Really adorable!!! :)

Our elephant, Maggie, from the Anchorage Zoo went to P.A.W.S. in Ca 2 yrs ag. They are a wonderful organization and Bob Barker is one of their biggest promoters.  It stands for Performing Animals Welfare Society. PAWSweb.org

I live in the UK and vets bills are very high.  I could not believe I was charged £92 to put Toby to sleep.

4maddie.....it is the same in states...I spent over 400 dollars on rescue kitten...who left after a couple of months! It is all ok ...can't begrudge any money i spend on pets...cost of keeping pet's ashes is high too...i have Bruno and Little Girl's with me and glad of it.  Hope your kitty will cost less to keep.

Now I have a cat it will be easier for me, as I can take him to a charity vets.  I could not take my dog as too far for him to travel as travel sick.

Here in UK if you are on benefits, you can go to PDSA (People's Dispensary For Sick Animals) and give a donation you can afford for treatment.  You have to pay full price for inoculations, etc, but to see a vet and get medication, is what a person can afford.  Medication is not free, but consult is.  My last cat was in overnight, and I paid £20.
