Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Thanks for writing in,
I'm very sorry to hear about your dog. Have you tried calling one of the larger clinics in the area such as Georgia Veterinary Specialists? There are often funds set up that will help pay for things like that especially for dogs with a good prognosis following surgery. There are also other options such as Care Credit which allows you to pay on this monthly, you can see if you qualify by going to their website. You may also want to contact your dogs breed rescue group in your area, often times they are very generous and will help you afford the surgery your dog needs. I hope this helps!! Best of luck!
Another expert on our site shared with me this list that she uses for others in your situation. I hope you find it useful!
