After reading one of the other threads on here I started wondering what is the largest Vet bill anyone has had. I lost my boy over the summer at 5 years old to post gastric volvulus. He was in the hospital for 4 days had surgery then came home and went back for one day. The total bill came to about $12,500. As a puppy he also had major intestinal issues for about $5000 for the first 6 months of his life. This is why you should not go to a BYB. Anyway just curious on size of Vet bills.
The OP of the other thread got a great deal.

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.

Russell's whole crazy episode with the telescoping intestine (intussusception) ended up costing about $1600.

So far my largest has been $200, but my dog is just 1 so I am fearful of something happening and having an enormous bill. I'm actually going to open up an account just for him so should something happen, I will be semi-prepared.
