Help exists for those struggling to pay veterinary bills!

Denying medical care to a sick or injured animal can ruin days and induce lasting guilt. Even so, the scenario is familiar among veterinarians with clients who can't afford medical treatments for their pets. Financially strapped owners often turn to euthanasia to alleviate an animal's suffering — sometimes prematurely.

Numerous charitable organizations hope to prevent this from happening, usually by paying for a portion of medical treatment needed by pets belonging to people with limited incomes. Such organizations proliferated during the recent economic slump, to the point that dozens exist today in the United States alone.
