In a ""Catch 22"" situation

WE READ with interest Mrs A Barnes' views regards vets fees in last week's Mercury and we fully agree with her comments.
Recently we have experienced fees for our dog. We were asked to leave our dog at the vets while they made arrangements for him to see a specialist, asking us first are you insured?
We are for �2,000 but have to pay the first �50. After staying at the vets all day, when we went to collect him, we were faced with a bill for �84.08. The next day we went along to the 'Animal Hospital' and he was hospitalised for four days for tests, etc. The fee was well over the insurance claim.
Now our six-year-old dog needs some therapy and the progress assessed. Cost for that could be more than �250 a month.

It does seem that animal lovers are in a 'catch 22' situation.
We adopted an older dog like the ones in last week's Mercury and enjoyed a happy five and a half years, so I hope vets fees do not put people off. Although at the same time I think the high fees should be looked into.
