Veterinarian bills for cat

Post by TimesofNY » Thu Sep 29, 2011 7:42 am

I need help for my sick cat and he needs medicine from the vet for his thyroid and his thyroid blood level needs checked again, office visit, blood work, and he has a cyst on his kidney and needs an ultrasound and surgery. Total cost is:$701.00, and that does not include surgery and the visit for the last veterinarian just for the thyroid level and medicine would be, $190.00. He is in alot of pain. And worse, this paycheck i received on 9/16/2011 was $3.94. My bill is due by the end of the month and I don't know how i will pay my rent and utility bill at the same time. My utility bill is $640.72 but they are working with me and allowing me to find $310.89. please, if you know of anyone who could assist me in this would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same problems right now with my Dog. The only thing I can think of is seeing if there is a township trustee who can help. Also the Salvation Army and area churches may be able to help on your utilities. good luck and ,God Bless

I think, most of dog owners faced the same problem, but thanks for your tips.

There are many charities and organizations that focus on vet bills, care for dogs and cats, and other assistance for pets, no matter what type. Vet programs can be found here, at help with vet bills.

When an animal is sick, vets examine it to find out why. They look for clues in the way an animal looks, acts, and smells. For example, if a dog is walking in a strange way, that might be because it hurt its leg. Vets need to look carefully because animals can't say what is wrong.

Dear Sir or Madam,I am a 48 year old disabled woman with many cats that I have outstanding vet bills on.  I was living with a friend while I was applying for disability, and my disability came through and I get $698.00 per month from Social Security Disability. My friend that I was living with has a mood disorder.  He suddenly went into a rage and told me to leave and never come back.  Now, I have no place to live and I am struggling with the medicines for my cats.  I do not have family, and I am staying with a friend now, but because of the situation, this is only temporary for a few days.  HELP!!! 
I have two Chihuahua's and a cat.  They are my family and I do not want to be separated from them.
I need help finding a place to live quickly!  Can you help me with Veterinarian costs for my various cats, or refer me to someone that can?  I have severe anxiety and am totally shut down.  I have PTSD, major anxiety disorder and major depressive disorder.  A friend is writing this letter for me because I simply am unable to deal.  I am severely depressed and am afraid that if I am in this situation without a place to live, I may become suicidal.
Please ASAP contact me via email, or call me. Thank you, Lea-Ann Martin

How many cats do you have? If you can't afford them, and are disabled with a limited income, then you probably should not have any. Or you should not have a dog/Chihuahua.
But for resources, if you insist, try the American Animal Hospital Association Helping Pets Fun. Or maybe you can look into some form of therapy dog or pet.
