I’ve decided that I should have paid attention in school and gone on to college and become a Veterinarian. Why is this? Well frankly because in the last two years my Vet bills have more than doubled for just the yearly exams for my fury friends!
I noticed that prices were starting to climb last year, but this year when I paid the bill I nearly passed out.
Now I understand that the Veterinarians have their overhead, like four or five technicians that for some reason do most of their work, not to mention the two secretaries who answer their phones and make appointments, but I am thinking that the world has gone a little bit crazy when it costs me more to bring a dackel in for a wellness checkup than it costs me for one!
Recently I’ve been talking to friends and family who have expressed great sadness because after their current pet is gone, they will not get another. They will be alone, with no fur child to soothe them.
I know that so many people up here in New Hampshire have brought their fury friends to the pound because they cannot afford their medical care.
Oh please don’t get me started on Pet Health Care Insurance. Do you know what sort of rip off that is? Trust me, it is almost as much of a rip off as these crazy Vets. and their crazy prices.
In the next few months I’ll be researching Vets to see if I can find one who gives multiple dog discounts. Or perhaps clinics that give you a break.
You see, with four dogs, we’re simply going broke. And I do not feel it is right that I either buy food for the family or spend over $500.00 at the Vets for them to look at the dogs, pronounce them healthy and then overcharge me for their heart-worm and flea medication!
