How Urgent is Your Cat's Health Problem?

A problem that some cat caretakers (cat owners) have is getting their cat to the vet promptly enough when the health problem demands prompt action. Delay obviously makes things worse. The usual reason for the delay is an understandable concern about the open ended nature of a veterinarian's fee. How much is it going to cost? If the health problem is unknown or unclear the cost will be unclear as well until tests have be concluded etc. Some procedures have fixed costs but a lot of health issues do not. The main reason for delaying is to see if the problems resolves itself to avoid vet's fees
