    What is the most you would pay to save your dog's life?

    We will be in this situation in the near future and curious what other's would pay. Even if you had the money would you put a 10 year old dog through multiple surgerys with long recover times?

    I think this is more of a question of quality of life...will your dog be able to have a long and healthy life, pain-free after recovering from multiple surgeries or will this be a battle your dog faces for the rest of his/her years?

    I wrote an entire hub about paying 3k for a dog to get orthopedic surgery. He's alive and well today, and still doing stupid stuff to bring in the vet bills. Literally last week he got an eye ulcer because he scratched his eye on something. For me, as long as he's enjoying life, he will keep getting everythng I can give.

    So much comes into play...age of the dog, condition, prognosis.  I just paid over $3,000 to have tests done on my two year old min pin.  Prognosis is good and he seems to be fine now but it was an awful lot.  We met a woman at the vet who had already spent $20,000 on a 15 year old dog and refused to put the dog to sleep even at the vet's suggestion.  The dog has seizures and lives with a tube in its throat for feeding. To me, that's cruelty, but that's just my opinion.

    I paid $1,200 for my dog's bout of gastroenterititis requiring 3 days of hospitalization and IV fluids. that's when I made sure to get dog insurance, hard lesson learned!
