    Both Chris Preston and the new Local vet never asked if I had Insurance before treatment...........I told them after the fact. The receptionist at Chris Preston did give me info on getting no-interest finance, the same as harvey Norman has

    The Vets at Family pet Center in Albury asked nothing...they just treated the dog, I told them three days later I had Insurance would they mind doing the paperwork.

    I am not sure if anyone will wait for payment....My Mastercard is carrying my load......so yes I will pay some interest, I will be over my 55days

    I still think the Insurance is worth it...I am out nearly $7000.00 with Katy's three events in one month.......TPLO (arthroscopy, x-rays and surgery), possible Bloat on a public Holiday, all those tests, desexing, gastropexy and check x-rays

    Poor newfie baby, I wonder if it was the dreaded osteo sarcoma.....If any Of my dogs had that i would PTS, It does not have a good outcome and is very painful. I am a fighter, but only for a positive out come and I won't let my dogs suffer with so much bone -pain....it is very common in the USA and I have many Newfie web friends who have been there, so sad

    Your girl look quite chilled...good to see Give her a big hug and some newfie kisses

    I paid a deposit thats fair..
    I am willing to sign something to say I will pay it when my insurance pays me or
    I will get the finance..
    So glad to see shes doing much better, im guessing it was snakebite after the anti venom?
    Do do not have much luck with snakes Lucky
    I will be very interested to see how you go with asking them to wait for the insurance!
    Love the pic, so sad to see her feeling so bad...

    Lucky lady, I'm so glad that the general anti-ven worked and that your gorgeous doglet is doing better today.

    When Rosie got bloat, we had to e-vet her as it was 6pm on a Sunday night. They saw her straight away, no discussion of $$'s at the consult until the end when they were discussing treatment options and outcomes. If we wanted them to treat, they estimated $XX, and we would have to cough up 30% as a deposit, which we paid no problems... was the equiv of one days e-vet admission - $400 from memory. It wasn't til 2 oclock monday morning that the diagnosis of a blocked gastro exit was established (thanks to an mri), and the decision was needed what to do - operate or pts. If we wanted them to operate, they estimated $2.5K...

    She was there a total of 4 days, and we forked over just on $4K in total, including the op and follow-ups afterwards. Like your girl Lucky Lady, Rosie would only eat from us, and would only pee if I took her!

    I know e-vets are super expensive, but the way I see it is this - they are basically vet specialists, highly trained in just about every field. Their equipment is brand new, top notch and extensive - how many regular vets have cat scanners, mri machines, intensive care suites? You have to pay for that, as well as their training, in the fees you pay, and I for one have absolutely no qualms forking over top dosh for top care. If I could afford for these Vets to be Rosies primary care doctors, I'd do it in a heartbeat because they are the best. (Well, at least the one I had to go to is)

    Yeah I am not sure how I am going to go with the insurance .
    I do know they will not bring my dog out with no payment..
    and whats my chances of me seeing the BIG boss man on a
    sunday if I do have to pick her up SUnday ???

    Seriously we don't think it's a snake bite but I am certainly no vet
    so I guess they are correct and it is a snake bite..

    My vet answered his mobile at 8.00pm. Never hestitaed to meet me at the clinic straight away. Sadly it was all in vain.
    Money was never mentioned and when i went in the next day (hardest thing i've ever done) i took in all the very, very expensive drugs that we were prescribed to Scooby and told them to give them to any dog that needed them. They ended up giving me all my money back, not only for the drugs but all my vet cost's in the last week. All up nearly a grand. It was vert nice of them but really all i wanted was my Scooby back
    I'm not sure if that the way it works with most vets if the animal passes on.

    I agree that the E-vet we went to in Melbourne was just the best and yes the equipment is worth millions, MRI, CT and such..i know that from where I work, a human Radiology Department.

    I just cannot get over the money being brought up before treatment.I find that very upsetting for you LL. you do not need all of that stress when you sweet dog is so unwell.......

    I am just furious at this vet as they are not sure what the cause is they only suspect it to
    be a snake..Cause we told them our boy died from a snake bite, they automatically
    assumed it was a snake.....
