$6k Surgery for a Dog?

main image

More Than Just a Family Pet

Every dog is an amazing, irreplaceable, one of a kind dog; especially if he is yor dog. Tom and Amy, Max's owners, are crazy about their dogs. So much so that Max was even the ring bearer at the wedding. To Tom and Amy, Max is more than just a pet, he is a family member. When a family member needs help, you do whatever you can, no matter the cost.

As we stated before, Max's gallbladder was about to burst, and needed to be removed. After taking Max to the Pennsylvania Veterinary Hospital, Roz Warren, the author behind Old Dog Needs $6,000 Surgery. What Do You Do?, soon discovered that there was a 30% chance that the dog would die from post-op complications. Tom informed Roz that the surgery would cost $6,000, and possibly more depending on the complications that arise post-op. Amy's parents said they would pay for a portion of the surgery, and Roz offered up a third of the cost to help. 

In the end, the funds were gathered and Max survived the operation and so far no complications have surfaced.

 

So what would you do? Would you pay $6k for a 70% chance that your dog would live another 3 years? We would love to hear from you if you have similar stories!
