Review for Pet Assistance, Inc., New Preston, CT, USA
November 2019, already having financial difficulties, I lost my job. I tried to keep my spirits up and focus on securing new employment. During this time, I exhausted the savings I had left, and maxed out most credit cards to handle food, medical, utilities, and other expenses. You can imagine the panic when my little fur boy got sick and I had no money to get help for him.
I have a wellness plan for him, and my other fur babies that allows me to take them to a vet to be seen and diagnosed, but it doesn’t cover treatment. Prince had been diagnosed with stones that were preventing him from urinating. I was told that if this wasn’t fixed, his bladder could rupture, and he could bleed to death internally. My heart was in a panic. I had enough left on my credit card for them to insert a catheter to drain his bladder, and to cover an antibiotic, but was told that this was a temporary fix.
I was advised to look for charitable organizations that might help me. I applied for assistance to a number of places, but PET ASSISTANCE INC was the ONLY one to respond, and their response was speedy!
I also found a low cost vet to take him to. I couldn’t afford the treatment plan there either, so I had to just bring him a couple days straight to have a catheter inserted to drain his bladder. Pet assisted Inc told me to have the treatment plan sent to them, and they would pay the vet.
Fortunately before they had to pay, Prince was able to urinate on his own. Between them draining and irrigating the bladder with antibiotics, and the antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications, and change in diet he got better. I’m grateful for the fact they they were about to jump in and help me and my boy during such a desperate time!❣️
