: I have a 6 yr old Jack Russell who very recently broke his leg (at the ball in the hip) surgery will cost around $1,000. I love my little guy, but this will really strap our family as my husband is out of work and I am the only one working. Do you know of any teaching hospitals that might offer surgery by students at a discounted price or agencys that could possible help with the cost? He is scheduled for surgery on Monday and I will have to take a loan out. Thank you in advance for any ideas. Alison
Poor little guy! Our very best wishes for a speedy recovery. :-)
Your best source of information in this matter is your vet. He/she should be able to provide you with the names of privately funded vet clinics and/or agencies in your area that may be able to help.
I'm sorry I can't be of more help; talk to your vet and see what you can work out. Best of luck and keep us posted.
