Lower the cost of veterinary care

I have a fb group called Helping Hands Pet Warriors.  We're a small group that formed when I had to euthanize my baby kitty, Gizzy.  Gizzy was my heart.  Notice, I said "was".  He had diarrhea so bad, I cleaned my whole living room and dining room with a Spot Bot.  I took him to 3 vets and they all said he had worms so they all gave him different wormers.  It didn't work.  They said to give plain yogurt.  Tried it.  Nothing worked.  The final vet I went to, told me to go to a specialist.  By that time, I was out of funds.  I could get NO help.  Instead of him suffering with the gurgling guts, shooting diarrhea and me feeling helpless to help him, I euthanized him.  That was an excruciating day for me.  The cost of veterinary care is so high, the average, or those on disabilities have a very difficult task ahead of them.  I know someone with $7000 on their Care Credit.  Some can't even GET Care Credit.  Me, for one.  To have a $1200 vet bill because their kitty had vomiting and stayed less than 36 hours is ridiculously crazy to me!  But, those of us that genuinely LOVE our furkids will do whatever it takes if we can.  I understand that vets have to pay for their stuff too.  They have overhead costs, medical costs, supply costs, employee costs.  I know they need to support their families.  BUT, these "pets" are OUR family too!  Please, help us figure out a way to defray the cost or lower the costs of veterinary care.  We're begging, pleading on behalf of our furkids!
