    A Recent Study asked pet owners how much they would spend on their pet if it became sick or was hurt

    Most pet owners (62 percent) said they would likely pay for pet health care even if the cost reached $500, but that means more than a third of pet owners said that might be too much to spend on an animal.

    This shocks me ..... ONLY 62% icon_confused.gif

    What if the bill for veterinary care reached $1,000? Fewer than half of pet owners said they were very likely to spend that much at the vet. Only a third said it was very likely they would pay a $2,000 vet bill.

    So much for Fido icon_neutral.gif

    Once the cost of saving a sick pet reached $5,000, most pet owners said they would stop treatment. Only 22 percent said they were very likely to pick up $5,000 in veterinary costs to treat a sick dog or cat.

    This is one of those things where people will say something different if anonymous
    But just ask yourself ..... where is YOUR limit
    Is it $500?

    $1000?

    $2000?

    $5000?

    $10000? Higher?

    How much would you spend on yourself or the one you love ?
    A pet is a member of the family.

    No limit, until it became a quality of life issue. Sometimes putting an animal down is the greater kindness since they can't make those decisions for themselves.
