Reply to "How to save money at the vet's"

We have had our fair share of pets, both dogs and cats. The last one was a wonderful dog whom we miss dearly. He was our "fur baby", and we wish we could find another that we felt would be so easy to train. We had our fair share of veterinarian bills as well. With the cats, two were brothers, born a few years apart. The younger one ended up attacking the older one while we were at work one day and nearly tore his older brothers front leg off. We let the vet take them both, since one was severely injured and the younger one had some minor injuries, but we found that some of the injuries on both left the needing to be put down. It was a sad day, and since they lived outside the vet wouldn't take payment on the bill of over $200. (This was in the 1980's). He just took it as a loss and cried with us, because he loved both of them, too. We'd already spent over $500 on them over the previous two years and he knew that we were on strike at the time. I still ended up paying him after we returned to work. "The Workman is worth his hire" according to the Bible. So, with our dear dog that we'd had for five years, we had to have him fixed, had to get him rabies shot since he'd been bitten by a wild animal in our area, and that was one expensive bill. We worked ours out on time with the vet by helping move dogs to the outside, cleaning cages and watering and feeding them. We paid the last bit in cash. There are always ways to find a good tech or vet who will work with you. Just ask. Some will say "No", but many will work with you. Blessings.
