Sad but very good news.

How much did your hysterectomy cost?
Has your dog had the same surgery lately? How much did her spay cost? Less than $500.00 I would bet.

It is sad that these pet owners lost their beloved bet, but very good that they lost their case. I for one don't want to see what has happened to human medicine happen to my pets.

I know we have all griped about our vet bills, but when you put it in perspective, I take my dog to a cleaner facility, where I don't have to wait that long, where they get a high level of care "A better physical exam than I get", where the doctor listens to me, and takes interest in my pet's issues. All of that care for only a small fraction of what it costs to get a lesser level of care from a human medicine practice.

I can't help to think that a lot of this has to do to the high settlements of malpractice cases, and insurance.

I sometimes wish I could pretend to be a dog when I get sick.
