Veterinarians and medical practices typically do not have the means to carry someone and what you probably will have to do is put the bill on a credit card or get a personal loan at the bank and make payments on that.

Do what a lot of Americans do for medical/dental care--go to Mexico. There is tons of farming there, and many competent veternarios. Good luck.

West Flamingo animal hospital takes 'care credit'. They are also very good Vets. Make sure you use the dog entrance though and not the cat entrance.

i know for a fact that the Veterinary Referral Center offers some sort of payment plan. i didn't take advantage of it, but they have a sign for it at the register. as the name indicates, they are a referral place, so your vet may send you there.

my american bulldog has blown both knees now (so i feel your pain, both emotionally and monetarily....but hey, at least he is outta knees ). had both surgeries done there. they also have a rehab place on site, w/ some really good people working at it. will be there in the AM tomorrow as my boy is going in for rehab (spend some time on the underwater treadmill).

overall, aside from the $$$, i was real happy w/ VRC. hope all works out well for you and your dog.

After you get your puppy fixed up consider pet health insurance. Some cover pre exisiting conditions to a certain extent. Mine is Pets Best. I had a mucho expensive surgery for my puppy (before I got insurance...Ouch!) but was able to put it all on a credit card and pay off quickly. He had follow up problems and surgeries and all was paid for. Good luck.

Just be aware that when you do get pet insurance (I have it, and would second that recommendation!), that some things are not immediately covered, such as the surgery above in question or the one for guinnessjim's dog. They may make you wait up to a year to qualify for things like that. It's in the medium print on the contract.... meaning, it's not hidden, but you have to read through it all to see that. The one I have is ~$11/mo. and just covers injuries/accidents. You can get higher coverage to include illness (even stuff like chemotherapy, etc.).

Yes, that's how mine works. He had to stay healthy for six months (and did just barely) for the additional problems to be covered. I had to pay for everything up front and was reimbursed about 2 weeks later by the pet insurance people. Just had to fill out a form, have my vet sign it and send in receipts. I have insurance that covers every health problem imaginable. With some breeds though they don't cover certain conditions because its so common with them.
