would you have paid this??? *edit pic of the $77 "vermin" for the haters

Posted by   + Show Post

a month ago we rescued some rats from the SPCA... this weekend we noticed one had an infected cheek and his teeth were growing crooked.


So today I took him to the vet.. $77.. to have him put to sleep and his teeth trimmed.. antibiotics. It will grow badly again but next time they should trim it with clippers.. $17 every 6 weeks or so...


the alternative is $10 to put him to sleep...


would you have paid it?


here is my $77 sweetie.. Perry.. his life is worth it.some of you on here.. hmm... not so much.

here is the issue with his teeth.. not something gnawing will help.. his teeth grow mis-aligned.


But you will be happy to know atm he is eating soup and doing well.

I do not like rats, but he is your pet, it is money well spent.  My dogs have cost me a bit of cash at times when it was NOT easy to spare. But I didn't think twice about spending it.

 For a pet rat hell no, I would rather cut my losses and get another pet!

Yep my husband would probably grumble about it but i wouldn't let an animal suffer. I spent $400 to get an infected fatty tumor removed from my dogs rump hubs whole family said we should just get him put to sleep he was only 10 months old! Now he's 6 and only ever been to the vet fir shots and to be neutered
