This debate has been going on, on another forum I am on, long story and not mine to re-type so very simply put... someone brings their dog to the vet in serious distress, vet refuses treatment without payment upfront, vet then also refuses to put the dog to sleep... the dog ends up dying at home after suffering for hours... assume rural area, no other vet in town. Was the vet right or wrong? I thought that the vet should at least agree to PTS and set up a payment plan for that. Many thought that the vet was right, services shouldnt be rendered without payment. The argument was that vets shouldnt be expected to provide free services and likely the person wont pay once the dog is gone. I feel like there are ways to force payment, if a contract has been signed... time consuming yes, but still available. And I would think a vet would want to prevent suffering even if they never got paid... I dont expect them to provide costly services but I cant imagine any vet is going to go under due to a few euthanasia shots. But, obviously this wasnt the popular opinion... so whats your opinion? And Yes, I know you shouldnt have a dog without a financial reserve for emergencies or a CC available... I wouldnt... but assume its too late, whats done is done.
