Bear's $711 ER bill paid in full

Bear got a cut on the top of his nose, which was bleeding profusely. Even though the cut itself was small, because the nose is very vascular, it was leading to significant blood loss, which required immediate ER vet attention. Once treated, Bear's $711 ER vet bill was covered by the Emergency Fund.

Peaches' $351 ER bill paid in full

Peaches' pawrents noticed she wasn't acting right. She was walking funny and had a hard and rigid abdomen, which pained her when pressed. She had stopped eating and had no bowel movements. After confirming the emergency with a GoodCharlie vet and getting to the ER vet ASAP, her $351 ER vet bill was completely covered so focus could be on her recovery, and not the unexpected expense.

Oliver's $304 ER bill paid in full

Oliver swallowed an entire chicken nugget whole that his human brother dropped. He started vomiting and couldn't keep his dog food down, but the nugget never appeared… it was stuck in his throat and required urgent removal, as he was in pain and gagging. Once his ER vet visit was complete, his $304 vet bill was taken care of.

Lynx's $750 ER bill paid in full

Lynx ingested some nerf gun bullets and was throwing up for hours. He stopped eating and drinking completely. Because the bullets were large relative to his small cat body, there was no way he could regurgitate or pass them. Emergency surgery was needed, and the full $750 Emergency Fund was paid to his ER vet bill.
