  • I would just call a vet and talk to them. Most are willing to work out some kind of payment arrangements. I would also be talking to the owner of the other pet about helping pay

  • The animal welfare leagues work on income based payments. If it was a wild animal your pet needs to be seen to rule out rabies or other lethal infections

  • sometimes depending on the wounds and how severe they are you can actually call a vet explain what happened and they will sell you some meds without a dr visit...now if there are gashes that need stitches and such well then they need to see a vet

  • hey if the dog is badly hurt ,then you must still take him to the vet . just explain to the vet people that right now its very hard for you to pay such a large bill. if maybe you can pay it by parts little by little.
