Ride To The Poor House?

24-hour Veterinary Clinics are a sure way to end up with a dead pet and a bill that'll require a 2nd mortgage for most people.

Add a pet ambulance charge and you might as well bring the pink slip to your car along, although if you have a car why are you calling an ambulance?
They have to drive twice as far and I'm pretty sure that using a siren and speeding isn't allowed, so unless your fat-ass dog needs a defibrulator to re-start it's lazy heart, what can a vet's assistant really do?

Sure, I "love" my snake and guppies, and the dogs and cats before them.
But there's a limit.
Maybe the time I spent on a farm in Tennessee has something to do with my pragmatism?
I have ridden in an ambulance only once despite major car accidents, nearly biting my tongue off (OUCH-and gallons of blood) etc.
Just isn't worth it most of the time.

Much like calling the cops because your husband slapped you--does giving a third party (lawyers, the court) a bunch of money solve the problem?
It's easier and cheaper to just bring him that sandwich...
