Holly, thank you so much for taking the time to share this vitally important information. It really is infuriating to know how they covered all their bases. Heartbreaking people to have to deal with the finances involved, much less the heartache of having their cats become sick as a result of this vaccine.

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

Updated links On FISS and where to report.

Manufacturers are listed below in the post- –

I believe this will answer anyone’s questions in the future.

  

Thank you so much Holly, this is super helpful. Since our How to Help Your Three Legged Cat book has direct links to this post, anyone who needs this information will get the most current info because of you.

The range of reimbursement is so wide. I also wonder what 'reasonable' means according to each company. Yes, anyone who has to go through this process (hope nopawdy ever needs to!), please let us know about your experience with the manufacturer.

The range of reimbursement is so wide.

It does not go wide enough imo. I know any amount will help in the cost but yea it is not enough. 

Happy to get this updated & hope less need for this info.

This thread is SOOOO helpful!! I'm currently in a battle between my vet and the pharmaceutical company for them to reimburse my sweet babies hemipelvectomy and amputation due to a rabies vaccine. It does sounds like I won't get my $15K back, but I guess something is better than nothing, right? Appreciate this forum and all the information you guys have provided. 

In addition, does anyone have any experience with veterinarian malpractice? I know I can report them to the state board but they messed up multiple times before sending me to an Oncologist and just curious what ya'll think. 

 

XOXO, 

Sugar & Me

Your post has been proved and, although I dont have any insight regarding malpractice, perhaps others can offer guidance. 

Overall, how is Sugar doing?  Sounds like she has had a pretty extensive amputation and hopefully she is past the hardest part of recovery.

Hi Amber and Sugar, welcome. I'm glad you posted here (talked to you in the chat). Can you please start an all new topic so we can get to know you two and offer any feedback on your questions? Thanks!
