our two dogs are like our babies.
We just paid 600 to get them both out quarantined at home for 6 months instead of in a cage
If we had the choice of uethinising (sorry cant spell haha) or doing a vet quarantine which for the 2 of them would have been well over 10,000 we agreed we would do it.
We would go into debt for them in a second. But also they are chihuahuas with life expectancy over 20 years, i dont know if that makes a difference or would to us if they were a different breed and had a much shorter life expectancy .
We made a commitment to them to take care of them, They depend on us.
posted before i read the threat so im adding
The above was just our situation. I dont think others should go into debt for their pets necessarily. And of course if it comes down to our daughter or the dogs, it would be our daughter. There is a limit for sure, but to us at the moment up to maybe 20,000 in debt we could do. It wouldnt be smart, probably crazy, but I dont know in the situation I couldnt look at my dogs eyes and tell him he needs to die because we cant afford to save him or her (we have a girl and a boy). They have given us everything. Their whole world revolves around us
Its just hard for me to think about losing them. Just being without them for 5 days while they were at animal control and having them come and take them out of the blue, was so traumatic for me. It really made me think about losing them. They mean so much to our daughter as well. She was looking for them when they were gone.
So i dunno we would do what we could up to a point. And i think its a personal decision that of course depends on one's financial situation.
