    Ask family, friends also ask the vet if they can help you with a payment plan. Good luck

    Call other vets. Most of them really care about animals and are not so unethical as to refuse treatment to your dog because you don't have money. If all else fails, make the appointment, bring the dog in, and then when it's time to pay, tell them you need to pay it out. Then they'll have done the surgery and you'll have a little more time to get the money.

    Most places have a credit company they work with to arrange payments. Talk to the receptionist. I know when I just had my dog in the emergency room (they too want the money up front) they had all kinds of brochures on these credit companies. That or just charge it to a credit card and pay it off as quickly as possible.

    Dont get me started on this subject.......Call around to any vet in your area, one should be able to work something out with some kind of a payment plan. You can also look on the internet for pet surgery assistance.

    Try anything because it means life or death.

    There is also a plan called Care Credit specifically for vet bills. It is like a credit card, but it doesn't start accuring interest until after 3 months.

    Ask around. Many vets carry it.

    Do a search on "In Memory of Magic". If they're still around, they might be able to help. If not, the only way to be kind to your dog, and possibly save his life is to ask a rescue or shelter to take him. I'm sorry. I know it would be terribly hard, but it might be his only chance.
