Rising cost of pet care...
I read the article sylvitexas posted about the household items to have on hand for pets in emergencies, thanks for posting. In order not to hijack her thread I'll begin this one.
I also read one of the related stories on that page about the rising cost of pet care, someone's dog had a heart stint put in; cost was $15,000. Who can afford that? When euthanasia was brought up, she commented that "she would never do that - my dogs are my kids. A soul was trusted to me". I'm dealing with making a decision right now about putting my dog to sleep, this woman makes me feel extremely selfish AND confused. Should I get a second opinion? Did I really do as much as I should have? Will I be haunted by the "what if's?"
I have had alot of dogs and ended the lives by euthanasia of some; for some reason, I'm hesitating this time.
