I don't really recall the highest vet bill ever, when our female GSD(RIP) was getting chemo total it came to around $8000 but she'd also had cancer before and received radiation treatments so that would add to that cost.

My senior cat Jack has had tons and tons of testing done, last I stopped counting was around $5000... He has IBD, renal failure and a heart condition so he is still in the process of getting treatment. We spent about $1000 last week alone on blood work for him and getting one of our other dogs blood work and xrays(he was vomiting every day and couldn't keep food down).

I think a lot of people when they get pets don't really consider these costs, for me personally I would never be able to forgive myself if I had to put a pet down just because I couldn't afford treatment.
