The importance of emergency pet funds.

Hi EFers,


In Romandie a cat owner couldn't pay for emergency accident treatment up front. The emergency vet then refused treatment and by the time the owner got the cat to a vet who checked her, it was too late and the cat died.

Apparently cost for treatment would've been more than 1k which the owner says she would've paid (the bill - but she didn't have the money on her at the time of treatment).

So - cat and other pet owners, make sure you have a generous financial cushion for your pet's emergency treatment so that you don't end up in a situation like this one, as vets often request up front payment due to abuse of the system (nonpayment of bills after treatment).
