I was going to post this in the battery thread but it is closed. I figured I should still share it so I'll post it here...
@Bryansgirl. I strongly suggest that as soon as you are back on your feet financially you start an emergency vet fund for Bella.

I don't share this much because it's something that I'm ashamed of, part of the reason that Jersey passed away is that I did not have the money to taker her into the e-vet. She got horridly sick while I was away visiting family at Christmas. The person I had caring for her and Shadow did not let me know that she was ill, so by the time I got home she was skin and bones. My regular vet was closed, as were all the vets in the area, for the holidays, to walk through the doors of the e-vet and just get him to look at her would cost $160, not counting treatment. $160 was about how much I had in my account, I opted to wait the 2 days it would take them to open back up for regular hours, and I still to this day kick myself for doing so. She passed away early Sunday morning, the vet opened back up on Monday. Now I'll always wonder if she could have been saved, and it was a very painful, heartbreaking, lesson on planning ahead for emergency cost. I was like you my dogs got to the vet regularly, they were up to date on all their shots, got their heartworm preventative, they went in if they were sick to see the vet, they were well fed and had everything they needed; BUT, like you, when my girl needed emergency vet care I could not provide it. You got lucky and Bella has so far been fine, my luck ran out and my girl, who might have been saved I'll never know, paid with her life.

As I said, I don't often share that at all but if it will get you, or someone else, to start putting aside money for an emergency vet fund and spare their self and their dog any of that then it's worth sharing. Please learn from my mistake, it's simply not worth making it yourself and learning that way.

Rain, thanks for sharing your experience with Jersey. I think many have been or could be at some time in the future, in a similar situation. We do the best we can and sometimes it's not enough or it feels that way. (((Hugs)))

Your suggestion to have a fund or some other plan for emergencies is an important message.
