I had gotten a puppy from the pound that had parvo when I brought it home. the vet bill was just under a thousand for 5 days. The puppy didn't make it. I was however reimbursed the money because I got the puppy on Tuesday just before they closed and had it at the vet Wednesday morning knowing it had parvo.

thankfully thats the largest at one time however I've had several $400 visits with my current 9 year old dog. And a $500 visit for my sisters lab puppy because my daughter (4 years old) accidentally sat on it and fractured it leg.

so far here about $150 is the max. She scratched her eye or something and it got inflammed and they did send me home with some ointment for it. when she's older and I spay her that will probably be the expensive one, as long as no emergencies happen

$1500 for Robyn when she came down with something that never got diagnosed . A couple thousand when my older golden was attacked by a Rott( that bill was eventually paid by the owner of the Rott. $700 on same golden for undiagnosed stomach issue. $1000 for my oldest to have anal sacs removed but was never done because they realized once she was on the table they were infected. So far zero on the cats, but they are getting older. A couple hundred on Midnite and less on on golden puppy.

Mine was about $13,000. My pug was hit by car. I didn't have the money at the time so about $10,000 was raised from all over the world for his vet care. I paid a bit over $3000 after all the donations came in. This story was written days 2 days after the accident and once the associated press got a hold of the story a ton more donation came in.

Oh and he made it through 3 broken legs and lived happily until just a couple months ago. (9 years old) Super special dog you know the kind that steals your heart and after they are gone it will never be the same.

$2000 for a total hip replacement. That was 20 years ago. Today it would be four times that much!

Had to rush my dog to the Emergency after he was neutered because his scrotum sac swelled up to the size of a grape fruit and he was running a fever and couldn't walk. They said he needed an emergency scrotal ablation-price- $9,000. Unbelievable.

Daisy's total bill for 5 days of puppy ICU and all the plasma when she had parvo was about 3200.00 . I would have done anything to save her . When we found the tumor on the heart would have given anything but that was not the case. Still miss you baby and you were worth it.

Wow! I did not think this happened to anyone else's dog. The same thing happened to Taz, but medicine and antibiotics helped him. The poor dog could not sit or anything.
