To OP: good luck with your dog. Not all us vets are terrible, so I hope you find one whose advice you can trust soon. Good luck with Fenrir (love the name). If you need a shoulder to cry on, please do turn to us, not all the people at WB are cruel and mean. I think a few people misunderstood what you were saying. Don’t judge them harshly. As you are fond of quotes (YAY!) may I add one? A point of view is just that, the view from a point. – no freaking clue.
To all those people who say selling her wedding dress will come too little too late to pay for her dog’s bills: She can find a vet that does repayments, or alternatively one that allows care credit (most emergency clinics from what I read on VIN). Care credit is like taking out a personal loan. They destroy you with interest, but for those people who need a quick loan to get them through with medical expenses for their pets, this is a way. It lets you cover expenses until say, your wedding dress sells.
To all those people who think that the OP is money hungry borrowing from her mother: If you mentioned this before the first reply, i can forgive you – I also misinterpreted what she read. However the thing you may not understand is that VET BILLS ARE EXPENSIVE. Yes, i’m a vet and I am saying that. No, it’s not as expensive as it should be, if we were to charge what the human GP’s charge, then we would make the wage that they do, but we don’t, because we want to make it “affordable”. But that’s my rant for later. Surely everyone has been in a place in their life (college/university is mine, though we’re buying a house soon so goodbye money) where they have spent more than they could for a SHORT period, and thought they could rely on the people in their lives if needed. This is where OP is. Seriously people, look at the economy now, and how many people are living week to week because they were made redundant.
To all those people who think the Fiance won’t approve: My Fiance has been told MULTIPLE times that if anything happens to my cat, the wedding budget will be spent in an instant. I would rather have a living cat, lose all my deposits and a courthouse wedding than a dead cat. Hell, I would probably bankrupt myself before I let my cat suffer. And no, I am not kidding. If my Fiance was not someone who understood that (and knew how to rein me in if necessary) then he would not be my Fiance. Charlie (my cat) is my furry child, and he knows that.
But I didn’t want to make this about me.
Regardless, OP, I hope all the best for you and Fenrir. If you need someone to talk to, who understands what you’re going through (I’ve seen it damn too many times) please PM me. I’m not always around, but glad to talk when I am. Please give all my best to Fenrir, and know that one more person is praying for him.
