My beautiful girl was diagnosed with stage 5 lymphoma. This was just a few weeks after I did my Money Matters show on Pet Insurance. I am so grateful to have that insurance- MediPet has covered all the bills so far. A very emotional time but at least not a financial strain on top of it all #insurance#petinsurance
THE COST OF SAVING
How do we classify what constitutes saving when it comes to caring for our pets?
Is it better to not take your pet to the vet?
Speaking on behalf of “science”, most common illnesses have well documented disease processes which definitely take a few days to weeks or months to progress. I am always surprised when I attend to the late night or Sunday morning EMERGENCIES of cases that would have taken a long time to progress but are presented as having just started.
The outcome of such cases is usually fatal, yet it could have been fully avoided. It is always heartbreaking to see the client losing money in an attempt to save their beloved pet, when it is too late. Emotionally and financially, that is the ultimate cost of saving.
My best saving tip for today is this: IF YOU CAN VACCINATE AGAINST A DISEASE, THEN VACCINATE TIMEOUSLY. A good example is Canine parvovirus infection/”Kat grip” (which is rampant in our town). Vaccinating against this deadly disease will save you greater than 60% of the cost of treating for the disease. Other saving tips have been reserved for a more fitting time.
What might appear to be saving is actually nurturing a small problem until it is a fatal ending.

“First off, what is your dog’s name?”
“How did you get him?...Is he named after the Anchorman dog?”
“I did! It’s actually Baxter Brutus. A little Anchorman, a little Shakespeare.”
“Okay, I was gonna guess Popeye on that one.”
“How did you get Baxter Brutus?”
“Actually I got him from a breeder, she’s a sister-in-law of my co-worker. So I came in one day to the office and I was like, ‘I want a French bulldog’ and she’s like my sister-in-law breeds them.”
“How long did the process take?”
“About three months, three to four months.” ——— Sharing your #howimetmypet stories from around Chicago with the help of @whatwasbreakfast
And todays Drugged-Out-Doggy is Mr Desmond!
I gave him an IV sedation to keep him nice n still whilst I took xrays of his knee for his 8 week post-op assessment: afraid we can't ask a dog to lie perfectly positioned and not move whilst we take the xrays!
Des ruptured his cruciate ligament recently and underwent a fancy-pants surgery called a TPLO or Tibeal Plateau Levelling Operation to stablilise the knee again.
It’s the same as the footballers ACL rupture and likewise can end a dog’s athletic career.
If not stabilised properly they will be looking at a lifetime of intermittent lameness, joint pain and arthritis.
Lucky Desmond’s Mumma had pet insurance and could afford the $5-$6k surgery!
Not by performed by myself btw - this is a specialist orthopaedic procedure!
There is a cheaper repair option available called an extra capsular repair (around $2k) which can often be effective for small dogs under 10kg.
But in larger or more active dogs, this repair will rarely be effective long term.
A cruciate rupture is one of the most common causes of lameness in dogs and the incidence is increased in overweight dogs.
Dogs that have ruptured a cruciate also have a 60% chance of it occurring in the other knee.
So there is $10-12k in Vet bills done before any other illnesses or injuries!
Considering most pet insurance policies are around $30/month that’s $360/year so less than $4k over 10 years..
Makes sense to get pet insurance doesn’t it!!
Please also use this as motivation to get some weight off your dog if they're on the porky side.
Do you reckon they would prefer a little bit less food or 8 whole weeks of no-walkies?!

I was at the park yesterday morning running through the long grass in my favourite spot when a bigger doggie decided it would be fun to chase me. Naturally, I was much faster but somehow he cornered me and I fell against something sharp in the bushes. My thin whippety skin tore and created a big opening between my thigh and abdomen. Luckily there wasn't too much blood and I remained calm while the humans whisked me to emergency. There were so many accidents that day and not so many vets, so I had to wait patiently until evening for surgery. The wounds were checked and cleaned and stitched up with a drain for the fluids. I stayed overnight so they could keep an eye on me but I think they liked me so much they didn't want me to go home 😊
Check out my stories for updates. Today is Tuesday, day 1 of no running. I'm pretty chilled now but don't know how I'll be by day 10 🤪
