@sakurabean:  Oh bless, how awful for you, I lost my dog just over a month ago and I know I’d have paid anything to make him better.  Sending you and your spoilt princess hugs

I’m sorry this is happening! I know how you feel, my dog is my little boy. It’s scary when something like this happens. We had gotten a new puppy 2 years ago, and it had PARVO, the puppy got really sick, so we took it to the ER. Then, my dog starting acting very sluggish, not eating ect. It broke my heart! I thought he had it too, although it’s uncommon in adult dogs – anything is possible. It DIDN’T have parvo, he just apparently missed the puppy. Once the puppy was re-introduced, he was himself again!

Is your wedding really in 2014? I feel like you will still have plenty of time, or perhaps you could cut down on some costs here and there. I don’t know anything about your budget, so unless it’s super low, you should have room to wiggle.

@sakurabean:  I think you’re a wonderful puppy-mommy and I would do the same thing if I was in your position.

Something similar happened to my Roomate last year, his lab is like his son. He was financially strapped at the time and completely devastated.The vet helped him apply for a credit card that was exclusively for pet care and emergencies…I’m not sure of the details but perhaps it’s something you could investigate.

I hope it all works out for you.

@sakurabean:  I’m so sorry to hear about your baby! I know how you feel. I love my dog more than some people! lol. However, kind of went through something similar. A few months ago, our 6 month puppy at the time had to get emergency surgery to fix his fractued leg. Put us $6000 in debt and our dream honeymoon down the drain. Bottom line though, we didn’t think twice about the surgery… we knew it had to be done, and somehow we knew we’d get through it. Well 3 months have gone by and several bonus shifts later, our baby is 110% healed and we’re going on a HM to a beautiful all-inclusive resort to Playa Mujeres, Mexico. May not be our dream HM, but I’m excited nevertheless. You and your FI will definitely get through it! 🙂

I am so sorry you are going through this.  Back in 2007, two of my fur babies were seriously ill and I spent several thousand dollars trying to heal them.  It got to the point where I even eliminated unncessary expenses such as cell phones for my daughter and me and cable, among others.  Sadly, despite all, one did not survive.  After she died, I still owed $900 in unpaid hospital fees.  It was a dreadful time.  That being said, I do not regret pouring my resources into their healthcare.  My fur babies are part of my family.  You have to go with your heart.  I do hope you don’t have to postpone your wedding.  *hugs*

If ( and only if ) you think your friends and family would be supportive/receptive, you could start a chip-in (it’s a website) to try and cover some of the cost through donations.  A lot of people use chip-in for sick animals.

You are an AMAZING pet parent! I admire and respect you so much! 

Weddings come and go, but your dogs love and affection and HEALTH is so much more important in the long run.

I’m so sorry for everything you’re going through. And you are a wonderful furmommy. Your stinky baby will be there for you. Wedding dates can change. 🙂

Best of luck. I hope she’s ok.

I’m sorry your baby is suffering! I’d do exactly the same thing, but I also know that it would be really painful to delay your wedding. Could you downsize it maybe? 

Goodluck with your wedding and fur baby.  **hugs**
