Often times, beloved pets are taken to the veterinarian to be assessed for an illness or accident but the cost of care is unaffordable. Vet bills can be as little as $200-$500; however, in today’s economy, families can find themselves thrown into financial hardship as a result of that one expense. Sadly, euthanasia becomes the pet owner’s only option.
Because many of us consider our pets to be family members, one can only imagine the heartache and distress this situation will impose on a pet owner and their children in the home – for something that is fixable! Healthy pets with very treatable conditions should not be euthanized, just because their family couldn’t afford this single expense.
