Hey guys, I've honestly ran out of ideas, and it's really getting to me.
I got Jax when he was a little cotton ball pup, he's now 5 years old, and since then he's gained a new best friend, my daughter who is now 2.
About 3 weeks ago, Jax started to limp and we took him to the doctor and the prescribed us Galliprant. We were put on that for about a week and Jax started to do a little better (so it seemed), he started putting a little weight on his back right leg, but then out of the blue, he went back to putting no weight on it.
Fast forward a week and we went back to the vet and they believed it was his "ACL".
I live in a small town on Mississippi gulf coast and the closest place that does the surgery is a state over about an hour away.
I drove out there with Jax and they confirmed his ACL is in fact the problem, they quoted a minimal of $3,700 for the surgery, $150 for the visit, and atleast $200 for the x-rays. I've always been able to provide Jax with all medical expenses, but this is absurd, I cannot crank out that kind of money, and they don't allow payment plans.
I've since decided to start a GoFundMe and it raised a little bit of money and I applied for Care Credit in the meantime so I could just take him in, get everything done for him ASAP, and put it on the Care Credit and later drop the GoFundMe donations on the card afterwards to lower the blow.
Well, this morning I was called and denied Care Credit because "I have too many bills", I have no bills minus my mortgage and regular bills that come with a house, and a car payment.
I'm at a lost of what to do, I don't even have enough limit to get the surgery placed on 2 credit cards, and with a 27% interest, it would be a never ending battle.
If ANYONE has ANY ideas that I can try PLEASE let me know.
Thank you all,
