Help when you need it
Many times we fall short on money and a Emergencies comes up we have put together a few ways to help when our pets fall Sick or Injured and needs medical attention.
A very large portion of the public cannot afford to take their pets for medical attention when a Emergencies comes up they don't have the money. Their companion either continues to suffer, or they die. It should NOT be that way. So we hope that posting a few links where you may find help for your loved ones.
maybe your family pet needs a surgery you didn't plan for. and you may not have pet insurance even if you do
your insurance may not cover all the costs for the
procedure you want and need, where do you turn?
Heres a few places you may want to check out, I hope one of them works for you.
I wanted to ad that by posting these links I (nor YorkieTalk) gets paid to refer CareCredit or IMOM.org pr any of these other links. I just wanted to post them so when you think you have no other options that there is help out there.
You can go here and apply for this card. its for humans and
CareCredit Healthcare Finance - Payment Plans and
Financing for Cosmetic Surgery, Dental, Vision, Hearing,
Veterinary & Other Medical Procedures
a program called "Care Credit" which is basically a credit
card for the healthcare (people & animals). The vet accepts
it, and it's interest free as long as you pay it off in the time
alloted (12 or 18 months)... So appliy and get approved so
you will have 12 months to pay the surgery off interest free
CareCredit, a GE Money Company, gives you convenient
payment options so you can get the procedure you want,
when you need it.
IMOM.org Helping People Help Pets
Helping people help pets". To better the lives of sick, injured and abused companion animals. We are dedicated to insure that no companion animal has to be euthanized simply because their caretaker is financially challenged.

All very helpful information. With Gizmo's bouts of Pancreatitis and HGE and costing 400 to 500 at a time, I went with the Care Credit. It can also be used for human medical purposes. I use it for the dentist. The payments are very reasonable and if you pay it off within a certain time there is NO interest. Should anything ever happen again, God forbid, the financial part is covered. There is a 5600 limit on mine.
I also have the peace of mind knowing should we ever need an ER vet and low on resources I can just use the Care Credit and be seen, they are very expensive.
