The first thing to do is go and speak with your vet. This will give you some idea as to what you should expect as far as cost of the visit. Speak with your vet about the procedures that would be necessary, such as any x-rays or blood tests that may need to be done, and how long those will take. You might also ask if there are alternatives that could save money for your situation. If it turns out that a trip to a veterinary office isn’t going to work out for you, then try focusing on the most affordable option – including any alternative treatments – instead of making excuses why they can’t happen now!
