Were You Stuck With a Big Vet Bill? Tell Us About It.

Dogs and cats are members of the family. So when they are sick, many pet owners will go to nearly any length to make sure they’re taken care of.

That care, however, increasingly comes at an eye-popping cost: Veterinary bills have skyrocketed in recent years. Even routine visits can add up to hundreds of dollars, and a frantic trip to the emergency vet can quickly max out credit cards.

And while pet health insurance can help ease the financial strain, it has few of the consumer protections (like coverage of pre-existing conditions) that are required for human insurance.

The New York Times is interested in speaking to pet owners who can share their recent experiences paying for veterinary care.
