Well after looseing my Power Thursday night due to Huricane Katrina I have spent way too much money trying to keep Pulpo alive.
$700 generator and about $5O every other day in gas.
Well the power is now back on tonight and she made it just fine.
With the temp in the room getting up to 96 durring the day I have to say that my Arctica Chiller worked like a champ keeping the tank a chilly 74.
I can't wait to sleep in some A/C

Yeah our vets could add a new clinic from the profits they get from our two pampered pooches.

Sound like you've had a rough time sorseress, what with chemo etc :sad: hope all is looking better with your pets now!

Unfortunately, we're down to 2 cats now.....But we managed to give all of them a lot more time than they would have had, and mostly good time, I think. One of our kitties is 20 and gets insulin 3 times a day, and food 6 times a day to keep him from going into insulin shock. Kind of keeps me tied down, but he's a sweet old boy and deserves all the care he can get.

Absolutely! I've always maintained there is no point having animals if you can't give them the very best you can....even if they end up spoilt!

I would be willing to bet that most of you would be very surprised to find how little profit most vet hospitals actually make. It costs me about $1400 a day just to open my doors, pay the staff, utilities, rent, etc. I run a one doctor hospital. To break even, I have to average over $140 of sales per hour (even in the slow times.) And then... those drug companies do charge for their products.

I'm not really complaining about vet prices. I really love our vets and the rest of the staff, and I know how much they care about all of our animals.

Oh please don't take offense! I didn't think anyone on this board was complaining about vet prices, I just needed to rant a little this morning. Sorseress and Jean and all, I meant no offense and respect you very much.

None taken! And you're right wasn't complaining........just glad we have pet medical insurance :grin:

Actually I wouldn't be without our vets as our Spaniel has PRA and associated eye irritations and our Min Pinscher is officially randy (needs anti androgen shots every now and then) :shock:
