Forking it over for Fido

By The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

When our dogs and cats used to get very sick, owners could justify putting them to sleep because it was the only option. In an age of kidney transplants for cats and chemotherapy for dogs, euthanasia has begun to seem like a cruel way out.

Yet not everyone can afford to save a pet. It’s possible to go bankrupt trying. Meanwhile, vets themselves are struggling with whether to offer such expensive services to clients they know can’t afford them.

Every year, our pets become more like family, and in some cases, virtual children. But just how far should we go to save them?

See tomorrow’s Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Family for more on this ongoing debate.
