Our pets aren’t just our best friends; they are family. As with other family, we’d do almost anything to keep them safe and happy. That is, we’ll do as much as we can afford to. No one likes to think of our loved ones in terms of dollar signs, but when it comes to situations like veterinary bills, it can’t be helped.
According to research by AVMA, 36% of U.S. households have at least one dog, and 30% own at least two cats. The study also found that about two to three veterinary visits each year are required to keep dogs healthy and that cats need one or two a year. Pet health insurance is even more difficult to obtain than human health insurance, so it’s likely that most households will have to shell out anywhere between $90 to $375 on each routine vet visit.
Because these routine vet visits can be planned, it is easy to calculate those fees into our monthly budgets. It is the unexpected visits that we rarely are prepared for, and these large bills often catch us off guard. In the case of an emergency, you could see a clinic fee that’s very well double or triple the price of a routine visit. For example, if your curious cat decides to eat your daughter’s plastic hair ties or your dog gets a chunk of his favorite fetching stick stuck in his throat, the surgeries could easily cost you thousands.
Just like us, our pets require extra attention as they age. You can expect to see hip dysplasia in aging dogs, and all pets are as susceptible to glaucoma and diabetes as we are. Procedures and medications for these conditions will also cost several thousand dollars. As expensive as our pets’ health might become, their continued companionship is priceless, and we will usually do whatever it takes to keep them healthy without question. However, when it comes to cost, sometimes the money just isn’t readily available when we (and our pets) most need it.
When you’re hit with a huge pet bill, one option is to see if your vet offers payment plans. If they don’t, then you should pull your phone out, open up your Google app, and search for a “title loan near me.” You will find that a title loan in Memphis is a quick alternative to finding the cash you need to keep Snuffles well and your family intact.
