It's all about money. Be sure to understand that. Things are rough and people don't trust anyone anymore. I would have agreed to paycheck garnishment... anything. It was cold. It was business. If you get a pet, get pet insurance so you don't feel like scum as they tell you to let your pet die if you don't have thousands upfront. I've never felt more helpless, humiliated or worthless in my entire life. I don't think I'll ever stop crying. I don't know if it's different at other clinics, but I'll never go back. Not ever. My dog was a friend and this wonderful little person in a fur coat and no one there cared.
