OnMyWay2MyDreams said exactly what I was going to say. Look into Care Credit. I just got one myself because Jersey just needed a minor surgery I didn't have the money for up front and Ozzie is likely to need hip surgery next year. Here's the best part about it: you know when you sign up for a new card they give you so many months interest-free? Well, with Care Credit, every time you use it you get an interest-free period just like that. For example: Jersey's bill was a bit over $600 yesterday -- I have 6 months to pay it off with 0% interest. The larger the purchase, the more time you have to pay it off. If I remember right, I'll get something like 18 months for Ozzie's surgery based on what I expect it to cost. Otherwise, I have no idea how I would afford it. Their website is great, you can get instant approval and a number to begin using it before the card even arrives in the mail if needed. And you can search on the site to see which vets in your area and which specialists (if one is needed) will accept it as payment.
Good luck with your pup! So sorry to hear she is having to go through this... and you too!
