Some other suggestion to pay veterinary expenses

Care Credit
A credit card that's specifically for health expenses, including your pet's. Care Credit offers no interest or low interest plans with fixed monthly payments that allow you to budget your money. It's accepted by many veterinarians (and people doctors). 

Give Forward
Enables you to create a personal fundraising page to raise funds for pet medical care. They charge a small percentage of funds raised. 

Negotiate a payment plan with your vet
.
If you're a client in good standing, she may be happy to work out a weekly or monthly payment plan so that you don't have to pay the entire cost of veterinary care up front.

Explore ways to bring in some extra cash.
  • Have a yard sale. One's man's trash is another man's treasure.
  • If your birthday or a holiday is near, ask for cash in lieu of a present.
  • Sell things on an online auction site such as eBay.
  • Consider getting a second or part-time job or working for a temp agency.
  • Ask your employer for a salary advance.
