I set up a payment plan with my vet in the spring. When everyone (dogs included) are due for their shots. Last spring we had all the vaccinations then injuries and different dog-horse ailments I couldn't get it paid off before the next thing got added on. It got a little scary for awhile

Thank God and Knock on wood...... My horses were very healthy and for the most part vet bill free. Also I only had 2 to pay for.

Now the dogs on the other hand tried to suck my wallet dry last year one injury/ailment at a time....That sucked. We knew everytime we picked up the phone to call the vet we were saying goodbye to a couple hundred dollars.

Same here. I have a plan set up so every month I pay some thing on it. All my pets go to the same vet. All the cats, dogs and the horses. The ferrit has gone to him too...

*sigh* sucks, doesn't it?

In the past year, I have paid around $1800 in vet bills for Maia ($400), Denny ($1100) and my cat ($300)

I just took Miss Daisy (a dog) in this week for X-rays and medicine. At least the leg wasn't broken, that would have broke the bank. Its just arthritis setting in.

I'm with ya...

Scout was $400 for neuter and microchipping... Flash was $500 for his Rocky Mountain Fever... Black was $380 when he went down... then there was Pistol's colic for $300 and gosh knows what else...

It was still better then last years Beauty and her $6000 surgery....

I have a vet that comes to my house for my dogs and cats. She was going to be my mares vet too except she wanted a $100 farm visit fee because of the distance. But she works with me when it comes to the house animals. We rescued two lab puppies that someone dumped off out in the middle of no where. They were skin and bones and so skittish. The first bill was over $300 but she worked with us. If I ever need something done with my mare and don't have the money then I'll call her and ask her to drive the 35 miles to the barn. Hope it never comes to that, but I'm sure it will sooner or later.

Thats not bad compared to what we pay. Teeth alone can cost 350-400!!! It's crazy!
