From the TCS Forum Rules:


No online advice can replace direct veterinary intervention. If you suspect that your cat may be ill, please contact your vet immediately. You are welcome to look for advice in the health forum while waiting for that appointment, but never delay proper veterinary care waiting for Internet advice. Remember that cats, and especially kittens, are very adept in keeping pain to themselves and delaying treatment may cause irreversible damage.

That being said, sometimes members find themselves short of cash with a sick pet. Please take a look at this excellent article that contains advice on how you may be able to afford that trip to the vet, even if you think you can't:

When You Can't Afford a Veterinarian

I was hoping to post these in the topic on this subject that AbbysMom posted, which is pinned to the top of the forum, but that's locked so I can't reply there.

AbbysMom linked to an excellent article, but the link in that article to the Humane Society page on getting help with vet expenses no longer works. This is the current link

Having Trouble Affording Veterinary Care?

and that page on the Humane Society site links to this page:

Having Trouble Affording Your Pet?

This page is also very helpful:

Financial Aid For Pets

That page includes a link to a list of organizations offering assistance with vet bills in the UK, but I want to mention one of those in particular:

PDSA - for pets in need of vets

Hope this helps!

Just to quickly add -

The link in the original article on TCS has been fixed :)
