i have two dogs, thor the dobie, jake the mix, and two fixed male cats, clark the good one,...roland the evil one. Here is my year. Jake gets an ocular ulcer, my vet grids it twice,(eye) makes a blood serum from jakes blood for high drops. used human eye drops... did you know there are canine opthomoligist? She is a very nice lady. She grids the eye more aggressively....heals.... how much so far around 900 bucks. I am not rich. I had to do payments etc. thor gashes the inside of his thigh....er vet to boone.....to clean the wound and make it bigger....the wound had began to heal. ( o yea i feel proud that we didnt notice it for two days but it was up at his groin and it wasnt till he turned over ....man i feel bad enough alright?) this set me back 291.20 what the hell the 20 cents was I have no clue. now added on to normal shots, worming, flea treatments...well I just can not afford another free dog or cat lol.....so what is your worse story of stupid vet bill. and how far will you go to save your pet? one of my dobermans was thought to maybe have bone cancer, i researched it....before the test came back so I knew I would not do the treatment but let him go. (the treatment would have been total amputation of his hip and leg) giving him maybe 3 months to a year.
