Another dog with pyometra.

It has been confirmed, my second and only other dog, the sister of the same litter to the first one also has pyometra confirmed today by the vet, unfortunately we've exhausted all our financial resources last month saving the other dog and im afraid theres nothing we can do to help this one

i dont know what else to do, i started a gofundme page but i do not think i will raise enough in time which is unfortunate because i can afford $100 a month in payments, i just cant afford the upfront cost all at once and they wont do a payment plan and they dont take carecredit

any thoughts, ideas, or assistance would be much appreciated

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't this disease one of the uterus? Why don't you just get the dog spayed?

an emergency spay is the procedure they do for this, but its $400 as it takes extra care because its an infection, we were going to spay her normally this month but blindsided with other financial problems so we were planning to do it in early march.. unfortunately the infection happened before we could

Check with other vets, even if you drive some may have more feaisable plans.

Have you contacted the animal shelter and asked if they have any programs you can use? The shelter in my town, and has such programs if the pet needs an emergency procedure. They'd rather help the owner get their pet the medical care they need rather then having the pet abandoned at the shelter, denied care, or put down for something that's correctable.

As someone else suggested, try calling your local shelters, some of them do have vets which treat "hardship cases", or they may have a suggestion as to who to try calling. If your dog is any specific breed, and you can find a rescue group dedicated to that breed (or if not, you may try some all breed groups), they may have a rapport with a vet and be able to help you to get care, or be willing to help you raise funds. Will your vet "hold" a check for part of the amount? Can you pawn something you don't use daily (jewelry? etc- if things will get better for you, you'd be able to get it back)? I've seen people put all kinds of stories on craigslist and facebook regarding their own as well as rescued animals health needs, and people come out of the woodwork to help out, whether because they feel for the owner or the dog. Ask your vet first if they would accept payments like that, then most people will put the hospital's information so payment can be made directly to them which makes it look more legit.

There are a lot of financial assistance groups and ideas listed here:
Financial Aid for Pets | Best Friends Animal Society not sure if you've tried all these?

Try applying for care credit: Healthcare Financing Credit Card | CareCredit

Most vet clinics will take care credit...It's basically a credit card for health care. For charges over $200, they will let you pay it off interest free if you can do so on 6 months. Otherwise the APR isn't bad at all. You can apply online and know if you get approved instantly.
