How High Would the Vet Bill Have to Be For You to Stop Treatment on Your Pet?

All the staffers here at 95.7 KEZJ love our pets. Even Terry Morgan. As pet owners we all know that vet bills are no joke. Theoretically though:  How high would they have to get for you to say, “I love Brutus and all, but I can’t fix his knee if it costs more than my piece of crap Toyota”?

According to the Veterinary Pet Insurance Company from PR Newswire, the average tipping point where people decide to stop treatment is . . . $1,451.

The thing is . . . while that’s a lot of money, it’s not THAT high.  Some pretty common pet injuries and illnesses cost at least that much to treat.

When a dog or cat tears cartilage in its knee, the surgery is more than $1,500.  A foreign object in the intestine or stomach can cost $1,500 to $2,000 to remove.

Treating tumors costs more than $1,600.  And treatment for disc injuries can cost around $3,200.  That being said, how much would you pay?
