Question by thatgirl90: Is there a company, or anyone that helps fund ACL surgery in dogs???
I didn’t know if maybe there was a non-profit or something that helps families cover the considerable expenses when a dog has to have ACL surgery???
To bmoline:
She has to have surgery, there is no alternative except to just let her suffer forever with a lame leg and the arthritis that would grow increasingly painful in that knee. I have no choice but to do the ACL surgery for her, I love her.

There is Care Credit for people to apply for. It is a company that will lend you the money to have medical need taken care of for your dog or cat.
You will have to pay them back just like a credit card but they do offer low or even no interest loans just for this purpose.
Here’s their phone number call them and apply right over the phone and see if you qualify.

Best of luck!

    “From time to time, recognizes a caretaker of handicapped pets that need some special attention, and a little extra help. There are those who are so selflessly dedicated to their animal families that they give up a little more than they can afford.”

    American Animal Hospital Association
    “The heartbreak happens all too often ? a pet owner is unable to
    afford treatment and their sick or injured companion animal pays the price. If the owner is elderly, disabled or on a fixed income, the
    cost of care may be too much of a stretch for their pocketbook.
    Perhaps they have been victimized by crime, property loss or a job
    layoff and are experiencing a temporary financial hardship ? making it too difficult to afford pet care. And some animals, brought to clinics by Good Samaritans, don’t have an owner to pay for treatment. Whatever the situation, the fact remains the same: When sick or injured animals are unable to receive veterinary care, they suffer. Through the AAHA Helping Pets Fund, veterinary care is possible for sick or injured pets even if they have been abandoned or if their owner is experiencing financial hardship.”

    Angels 4 Animals
    “Angels4Animals, a non-profit organization and a program of Inner
    Voice Community Services, has a mission to serve as the guardian
    angel of animals whose caretakers find themselves in difficult
    financial situations. At Angels4Animals we believe that animal owners should not have to say goodbye to the animals that they love. Our work is accomplished in conjunction with veterinary clinics across the country, eager to assist as many animals, and their owners, as possible. Our services range from financial aid to complete treatment to those pets and pet owners in need.”

    Care Credit
    A credit card company for health care, including veterinary care.
    “CareCredit, the leader in patient/client financing, has helped more
    than 3 million patients/clients get the treatment or procedures they needed and wanted. With a comprehensive range of plan options, for treatment or procedure fees from $ 1 to over $ 25,000, we offer a plan and a low monthly payment to fit comfortably into almost every budget.”

    The Pet Fund
    “The Pet Fund is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit association that
    provides financial assistance to owners of domestic animals who need urgent veterinary care. Often animals are put down or suffer
    needlessly because their owners cannot afford expensive surgery or emergency vet visits. Companion animal owners must often make the difficult decision to put an animal down or neglect urgent medical needs because of the costs involved. The purpose of the Pet Fund is to work towards a future where decisions about companion animal medical care need never be made on the basis of cost.”

    UK Assistance with Veterinary Bills
    “Most of us can cope with the financial commitment involved in the
    day to day care of our pets. However, how many of us come out in a
    cold sweat when our pet is ill or injured and we know we have to take it to the vet? Most of us are fortunate enough to be able to afford it but, some of us who love our animals dearly cannot. Unfortunately we do not have a PDSA or a RSPCA Centre within our area, but there are a few charities who may be able to help.”

    Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance Programs provides financial assistance for emergency medical care for cats.

    The Feline Veterinary Emergency Assistance Program is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization that provides financial assistance for emergency medical care to cat and kitten guardians who are unable to afford veterinary services to save their companions when life-threatening illness or injury strikes.

    I don’t know the answer to this, but I do know several Orthopedic Surgeons that say repairing an ACL on a dog is a waste of money. They do these surgeries everyday on people as well as dogs. Difference is, when a person has the surgery, they have things to prevent re-injury and help the healing process. We can’t do that to dogs, so the chances of it being re-injured before it heals completely are very high, and require another surgery.
    Just food for thought, in case you are considering ACL surgery on your beloved.
