We are actually in this situation at this exact moment. We are not the richest by any means, but we do okay. That said, our two year old (human child) had a rather large medical emergency earlier this month that literally wiped out our savings. Completely.

Today, my 8 month old doberman is at the vet waiting to be x-rayed to see if his arm and shoulder are broken (not even sure how he would have done it). I'm at a loss on what we will do if it's broken. I literally have nothing to pay for a 3-4 thousand dollar surgery because of what happened to our two year old.

So judge me all you want for not having a nest egg for my dog. I love the dog just as a child, but unfortunately the child decided to get hurt before the four legged child.

I'm not necessarily recommending the organization that printed this or what they say here, because I just don't know, but maybe one of these recommendations can help you:

If you think you can pay in small amounts over time, Care Credit is a good option.

I would be lost without Care Credit. I got it when I had a young male cat with a urinary blockage (a life threatening situation) and use it mainly for vet bills, but have also used it for human medical bills.
