Ky's Bald Belly!

Poor Ky has some some time in the vets recently. He suddenly started being sick and brought up some blood to so off to the vet on an emergency. It cost £85 just to get in the door!!! Anyway they did all sorts of tests, bloods, xrays and they shaved his belly for an ultrasound. He was in for 48 hrs. The bill was £770 and they never did find the cause.


He's back home now and starting to get back to normal though he's lost a lot of weight as he's still not eating much bless him. I posted this because it just looks so weird, especially as they obviously left his hair on his winkle. He also has to big bald patches on his legs from test and having a drip etc


Luckily we are insured but I feel it's a sad day when having a pet becomes a luxury item. Vet bills are so high now that even with insurance you have to think twice about taking your animal to the vet as they like you to pay up front and reclaim it from your insurer which can take up to 12 weeks sometimes.


Whilst Ky is worth every penny and more it's frightning to think how you would cope if you couldn't afford insuranve for your pet. Because I have 2 dogs and Max is nearly 12 our insurance is a staggering £64 per month!!!

It's easy to see why people can't afford it!
