Pet love certainly costs a lot

It breaks my heart when a business takes advantage of how much a family loves their pet.

Dear editor,

It breaks my heart when a business takes advantage of how much a family loves their pet.

I can’t understand how floating a 1000-pound horse and sedation costs $115 and to sedate and pull a tooth on an elderly little dog is $500-$7000 and up.

It’s not a matter of not wanting to spend a lot, it is what people can afford.

I am well aware that everyone needs to make a living but the inconsistency in fees to what is a beloved pet and to what is stock makes no sense.

If someone came to me needing care and didn’t have the funds, I would find a way to help them.

Well what comes around goes around.

Sincerely,

A broken hearted pet owner
