Default Sick Dog

My dog has been sick for the past four days. Yesterday he seemed to be getting better, but today he was much worse, so I took him to the vet this morning. He has a bad urinary tract infection. That's actually good news for two reasons: 1) There is an affirmative diagnosis based on actual data, and 2) he wasn't poisoned, which is what I feared. Only cost $480 to find out and get meds. I actually don't mind that fee TOO much for a few reasons: 1) like I said, we have an affirmative diagnosis and a treatment, 2) the doctor told me what the diagnostic options were with each associated cost BEFORE-HAND, and she was willing to do them "one at a time" to save money. I told her to do them all. 3) I was expecting $1000. Two x-rays (for blockage), blood-work (in-house) for systemic infection, and urinalysis (in-house) for urinary issues. I wish I didn't spend nearly $500 at the vet, but I don't feel like I got ripped off. THAT'S the surprise!

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. John 8:32

"We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful." ~ C.S. Lewis.

Do not confuse technical skill with wisdom and do not confuse strength for skill. Paul Skvorc
