If you have a dog or cat, you know that they’re more than just pets--they’re like family. You buy gifts to make them happy, and when they’re sick the only thing you want to do is find a way to help them feel better.
Even the most pampered pets can develop serious medical conditions that force you to take them to the veterinarian. Generally, trips to the vet aren’t as expensive as what it would cost you to visit the emergency room, but that doesn’t make them cheap. A serious condition such as Feline Leukemia can still cost you a lot of money.
Regular visits to your doctor can help them identify problems before they become dangerous, or expensive, problems. With your pets, regular trips to the vet will help you keep them healthy, but even the best preventative care can’t catch everything.
Just like humans, pets are susceptible to accidents, illnesses, and diseases that can come on without warning. When they’re sick, the only thing on your mind is getting them the treatment they need. Waiting until you have money saved before seeking treatment can make treating their condition harder, and it means your loved one is in pain longer.
Unfortunately, these emergency visits can be expensive.
Dangers Of Going Into Debt
Pets can bring a lot of joy into your life, so it’s natural that you want to treat them well. Even during those years that your furry friend is healthy, keeping them well-fed and happy can cost a lot of money. You planned on paying for their regular checkups, food, and favorite toys, but emergency vet visits can put a strain on your savings, or even force you to put some charges on your credit card.
But going into debt means that you have another thing you must pay back, which could mean less money per month to use on your pet and things they love. Making only the minimum monthly payments on high-interest debt can also mean spending a lot of extra money until that bill is paid off.
If you have no other option, going into debt to save your pet can be worth it, but why borrow when you can use your own money to cover their costs?
