If You Need Help Paying for Veterinary Services
("Speaking for Spot") Dr. Nancy Kay's comprehensive list of organizations offering financial assistance for veterinary care: "Many of these organizations help only in emergency situations such as accidental injuries requiring immediate care, long term health problems requiring surgery or ongoing treatment, such as orthopedic repairs or chemotherapy for animals with cancer. Some can also provide pet food and other assistance to seniors and people with serious illness or disability. Each organization has specific application criteria. Please check the organization’s website first before calling. This information is provided to help you in locating financial assistance to cover veterinary costs. The information has been compiled from many sources on the internet and was accurate at the time of compilation. You should always check the organization’s website for the most up to date information."
