I have been seeing a lot of the "we'll wait and see how things go for a while but now my pet has a really bad problem and I need it fixed quick & inexpensively" too.
I feel bad for, because it is tough all over.
Some of these people are good clients, and want to do what they can.
And euthanasias are on the rise, just like every holiday season.
I just take the joy when I can, and snuggle all the patients that will let me!
