    I'm always envious of people whose vets let them pay in installments. The amount of vet bills I've shelled out on over the years it would have made my life so much easier if I could do it in installments. But no vet I've ever spoken to in my area has ever let me.

    Can you not take out a credit card?

    Yeah not a lot of vets do it. £200 is good a month normally but without working itís a lot. Weíve never been fans of credit cards just never really wanted to get into it or rely on it

    I think some people have an 'emergency' credit card which they don't touch unless it is an occasion something like this, when they have no other option. Unfortunately, though, in your position you would end up paying interest as you would be unable to settle the account in full by the due date.

    There's nothing wrong with having a credit card - sometimes it is much more convenient to use it for purchases. Its when people don't pay them that the trouble starts.

    Yes I've just always got away with not having one really. But I'll probably end up getting one at one point.

    Hi everyone thank you for your replies! We had a vet appointment today, the vet said he wants to take our her top teeth as they just keep overgrowing, should be around £200. But her mouth infection is back and on her bottom teeth so he doesnít know if after the top are removed that itíll work since the infection seems to be in the bottom. Sheís back on antibiotics but he said it might be best putting her to sleep as she will probably have a life of mouth infections and mouth problems. She is 8 months old.

    Yeah he is rabbit savvy, he did her sisters surgery twice and heís done her surgery once on her teeth. So I do trust him, but looks like the problem is in her bottom teeth

    That sounds to be rather drastic. Personally I would seek a second opinion. Have any Dental Xrays been taken to assess just how bad the tooth root infection is ? It could well be that once all her Incisors (front teeth) are removed the current infection will not recur. It is impossible for a Vet to see the full situation without having taken any Dental Xrays. Rabbits can cope perfectly well without Incisors, they may just need their Veg cut up and have short cut hays.

    I would strongly advise you to seek a second opinion before agreeing to PTS.
