Q: How much would you pay

How much would you pay

I'm having problems with my kitten sneezing and have been taking him to the vet about once a week. Well today I took him back again and the vet told me that it would cost about $2000 for treatment, but they would try medication first and if that doesn't work we'll go from there. My questions is how much would you pay for your pet's treatment. These kittens were feral kittens and are about 3 1/2 months old. I've had them for about 2 months, and have gotten attached to them.

I'd try a different vet. Sneezing in kittens is pretty normal and usually meds will clear it up. Sometimes the meds have to be repeated if the first dose doesn't clear it up. What can happen is one kitten will start to get better and the second kitten will reinfect it so its a viscious cycle. But unless he gave you a diagnosis and it isn't an upper respiratory, I'd get a different vet.

My 5 year old cat suddenly started sneezing quite a bit about a year ago. We think he has allergies, like me. He doesn't seem too bothered by it. We just have to put up with snot on windows, which cleans pretty easy with windex. $2000 seems steep to me, my indoor cat seems perfectly happy and healthy, apart from a few sneezing fits a day, he is a normal cat. Does your vet think you have a money tree growing out in your backyard?

At their age you can get Insurance & try another vet. This day & age money just so happens to be an object & it is in everybodies way. Do what you have to do to get by the object!!! Keep Faith & good luck!!!
