There are a number of options available to you to help pay for vet bills, or to get your pet de-sexed:

  • Talk to your vet. If you’re a regular client in good financial standing with your vet, talk to them about options to pay over a period rather than all at once. Also ask them about any generic medication that they prescribe for your pet—this may save some money.
  • RSPCA’s Pet Sterilisation Program. RSPCA WA will pay up to 75% of the cost of pet sterilisation for eligible pet owners, through participating vets in WA. Check your eligibility here.

  • Purchase pet insurance. While pet insurance may not help right now, consider pet health insurance to help cover future medical costs and minimise vet bills.
