Well, yes if you would like to get technical about it. It would cost more than that. But if they are just putting the dog down and it spending a total of not more than a half hour in the facility...I don't think that the cost of rent and utilities and equipment and etc can come into play. Even for a surgery and an overnight stay would add to that much in cost of all the extras other than supplies. At least the vet that I work for can afford it, because an emergency that doesn't get paid for doesn't happen that often. Probably only once a year. Guess it depends on the person and where they are at financially.
