As always, it is too expensive to get medical care for dogs and cats. Insurance doesn't help because you have to pay out of pocket for reimbursement later. CareCredit won't give credit to retired or social security recipients so it is almost impossible to get assistance outside of friends, family, friends of family etc. Sitting in the room while your pet is in need and having to call everyone and their brother in an effort to find someone with money available to loan is more stressful than the reason the pet is in the hospital to begin with. Something needs to be done about the amount of money charged for services by all vets!
