Sometimes a pet owner will bring in a critically ill pet, but state they cannot afford treatment. Have you ever handled this situation before? What did you do?

1 Answers

I have, on many occasions. I feel it is important to empathize with the owner. Review Care credit, or other options such as calling friends or family. When you approach the situation with an air of a friend trying to help them figure out a bad situation, it is much better received. If all fails, and if possible (other reception coverage) excuse yourself to the back and speak with the vet about the situation. But NEVER say "I'll go talk to the vet" because then if you come back with nothing the blame will land on the veterinarian, which should always be maintained as far away from $$ as possible in the minds of the owner. They are the benevolent healer, and front desk are the money people. Less
