Need advice on how to help my dog who is having health issues.

about a week ago my dog started to act strange and he wouldn't eat. I didn't really worry since he has always been a picky eater and has gone a few days without eating before. after a week of him not eating and obvious signs of something being wrong I took him to the vet. The vet told me that something was wrong but he couldn't tell what it was, he recommended that we do an xray and bloodwork to see if he could find out what was wrong (I could only afford one so i went with the bloodwork) he also gave me some medication to help my dog while we waited for the results of the bloodwork (which haven't worked so far). The next day he called us back to his office and told us that something was definitely wrong and that my dog would need treatment and possibly more if he didn't get better. Here is the problem, I can't afford the treatment or anything after that, the vet told me that if I can't pay, there is nothing he could do. So my dog can't get treatment, he is still not eating after a week and a half and I've run out of options. I can see my dog getting skinnier and weaker by the day, he can't run/jump anymore and has to sit down to pee because he can't hold himself up. All i'm asking for is advice/opinions on what to do since I really don't know what to do now.

Sad to hear what happened to your dog. But the best advice that I can give it is to take it to the vet. You have to take all the advice of the vet, they can help your dog to feel better.

If he is getting weaker and skinnier by the day, you have to get him to the vet, ask family or friends for a small loan , ask the vet for payment options, don't let your pet suffer.

Find another vet that will help with payments. There are those that will do that. Also, look into care credit and find a vet who accepts that.

Call around and you will eventually find a vet who will help you. There are some out there who are concerned about the welfare of the animal first, then worry about payment.

How is your dog doing today?
