No veterinarian would be able to accept your Medicaid card for treating your dog.  That card is just for you.

That being said, there are numerous agencies, non-profits, and organizations that will provide either free or low-cost care for pets whose owners cannot afford the care.  Since you sent this question on a computer, you should use that computer to check out this web site: www.avma.org/onlnews/javma/oct09/091001a.asp

Further ideas would be to contact your local animal shelter/humane society for suggestions.  Go to Pets911.com, enter your ZIP code and find a list of animal shelters in your community.  Also try help-a-pet.org, goodsamfund.org, and thepetfund.com

Good luck with your search.
