Hurricane Irma Vet Bill

Due to hurricane irma we had to evacuate because we are in zone A. The day after we arrived Victor started limping, by the end of the day his leg was severely swollen and discolored. We took him to one vet and they treated him thinking it was a spider bite. He seemed to get better but we decided to take him back for a check up before coming home the next day. When we did the vet was concerned because he wasn't clotting properly and sent us to MedVet . They quickly realized he had vasculitis and a GI bleed. His hemoglobin was quickly dropping and he needed a transfusion. He's now been at the Emergency Vets for almost 2 week because his hemoglobin dropped dangerously low. He's had 2 transfusions and 3 surgeries so far and still requires 2 more surgeries one of which is a skin graft. We put down a $3,000 deposit. The bill is currently $11,000. The vets are giving us a 20% discount and donated $500 to our bill because he is my service dog and because we were evacuees from the hurricane. They are figuring out bill will total $13,000 by the time all is said and done not including the discount. We are applying for care credit and such but we will still be extremely short. I know its asking a lot but I'm trying to exhaust all options to help relieve some of the financial burden from my mom and I.The final update on the bill is it will be $15,000 after all is said and done. I do pick him up this Thursday the  12th.
