Hi everyone! There was a story on our local news last night that I find upsetting. About ten months ago a man rescued two cats that were in pretty bad shape. He took both in, nursed them back to health, and gave them a furever home. One of the kittys, Doyle, fell off a banister and broke her leg. The owner took her right to a vet who did x-rays and casted poor Doyle's leg. When presented a bill for $405 the owner explained that he didn't have the money right then but would have it by the end of the month. The vet REFUSED to return Doyle saying unless the full amount is paid, Doyle will either be given to another family or PUT TO SLEEP! The owner offered to pay half with the balance to be paid when he gets the money later this month. Again they refused, all or nothing. The news crew interviewed the vet about this. The vet said this is their policy. Vet said over the years he has had to absorb over $200,000 in unpaid fees and can't meet his operating expenses. When asked if a payment plan couldn't be worked out, the vet again refused saying when he has done this in the past the fees were never paid. Because the vet won't budge on this, Doyle remains in the vet's office and the owner is beside himself between missing his beloved Doyle and not knowing what Doyle's future may be. It seems to me that the vet is being a bit unreasonable about this and he's also being cruel by not allowing Doyle to return to her furever home to recover.
