When a pet gets sick or injured, vet bills can soar, leaving owners with tough decisions. According to SouthPaws Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Center in Fairfax, walking into the emergency room costs $100; resetting a broken bone can cost up to $6,000. Cancer treatments can run as high as $15,000 for chemotherapy and radiation.
