Solutions to unexpected and/or high vet bills.
Sometimes supporting the human potential also involves supporting the loved ones (furry/feathery/scaly) animals in our lives.
Having three children who all say woof (and two being treated for rare medical conditions at UC Davis), having the ability to take a breath when the emotions are high when a loved one gets sick is extremely important to not only the pets well-being, but also yourself.
When our little Zoë was taken to the UC Davis ER after her vet couldn’t treat her with the sudden onset of seizures; Tye and I looked at her each other, our wallet, and the receptionist who needed a deposit for care (after we just paid a few grand to get her from one hospital to this one). This was our kid, and well… this was our kid, we were going to give her the best fighting chance.
(Note- Zoë, pictured above, pulled through and ended up being an extreme rare of diseases. She currently is living a full live with her siblings enjoying extra treats with prednisone and lots of meandering walks in the forest with her favorite ball. Both of her neurologists are extremely pleased with her continual recovery.)
Below is a list of resources gathered from different people/organizations of financial resources for animal care. I will make an effort to keep this updated, and I invite you to share with me anything else that could be included.
Also, don’t hesitate to sign up for a Care Card or ask the facility if they can work with you. We discovered UC Davis pays for the interest for 18 months when you use a Care Card, as well as a setting up a payment plan.
Please share with others if they are in need of these resources.
Here’s to the health and happiness to your animals who make your heart melt.
