Depending on life I have anywhere from $400 to $1000 saved. That is the pets emergency find period, 3 cats, 2 dogs, 1 horse. However I have a fairly good relationship with my vets and I feel ok enough that even when it is at it's lowest they would come to an arrangement with me.
I would be totally in a mess if my regular vets were not available that day though. Especially my horse vet as I have only used one in the US.
