Need to get an emergency surgery for my Buddy here… his stomach has flipped and needs surgery asap to have a chance at survival. He will get the surgery one way or another and is already being prepped. I just don’t know how I’m supposed to pay for it… have already been struggling financially last month and this month having to cover the entirety of the bills when my roommate lost his job. I had already basically wiped out my savings after being hit with an unexpected fee from leaving my old apartment (that I had originally been told was going to be waived). I basically have nothing right now and rent/electric is going to be hard to cover this month.
But I’m not asking for money for that, my roommate has a new job and after a few weeks should be caught up with his bills and able to pay me back for his half he has been missing. But Lycan can’t wait a couple weeks while we get caught up financially… he couldn’t wait a couple hours. The flipped stomach is severe and if we had not brought him in when we did he probably be dead by lunch… the estimate for this surgery is expected to be around 3,500 – 4,000$ For the surgery, anesthesia, and post care. That assuming there are no complications which could bring it even higher… I’m sure some sort of payment plan could be worked out perhaps but an amount up front is still required. I’m not sure how much but if it goes over 300$ I won’t be able to make it as that’s about all I have left on my credit cards after covering some of the rent on those last month… and honestly right now where I am in life I’m not sure how I’ll be able to afford the payments anyway. I’m just trying not to let my accounts drop into the negatives, a task I’m barely managing.
Not getting this surgery is not an option to me as this dog is basically one of the last connections I have to my brother after he died in a car crash at the start of the year… I’m just trying to do right for this dog but if I could not go bankrupt in the process, that would be great. I just… don’t know what to do… This is sort of a last Hail Mary I suppose…
