663RE: [feline-heart] RE EXPENSES
- Aug 5, 2000Dear Melody,
This is absolutely outrageous especially as it concerns professionals who
are there to help animals.
Are there any animal welfare bodies in your area that could help you with
low cost treatment, etc? In the UK there is the PDSA (People's Dispensary
for Sick Animals) who provide treatment for those on low income - it doesn't
cover everything but it does help some in dire need. I cannot believe that
your vet would hold onto Bella until you came up with the cash - it has a
distinct gangster feel to it.
Perhaps there is a vet who operates a instalment payment plan or something
near you that would be easier for you.

\I was off the list and just came back today...I had to comment on this
because of what happened yesterday...
Just yesterday, Bella was held for ransomed while I rushed to my bank to get
more money. it was leave her or her medicine...and I can honestly say, this
is a continuation of a pattern of greedy vets who care nothing for our cats
unless they are a cash cow that doesn't stop for a second.
Sadly this isn't the first incident and it doesn't matter here in the
Dallas area who the vet is apparently...maybe some of you are in a financial
position to bear this burden but most of us are not so we just do our
best... I can cite you a number of horror stories.....I will supply chapter
and verse to anyone who writes me privately ----- Original Message -----
