Veterinary Companies Face Lay-offs.
Pet health has traditionally survived economic down-turns, but not this time.
Veterinary companies suffering from lack of business may not bring tears to your eyes (unless you are one of the up to 25% of staff laid off), but it is the pets who are the innocent victims here.
Urgent surgery is still happening for the most part, but preventive treatments have been shelved for the greater good of the family. And who can blame a family for choosing food on the table over dental treatment for the family dog?
However, skipping such basic medicinal worm treatment for your dog could be fatal.
Now more than ever might be the time to consider pet health insurance.No one would want to be in the situation of having to have a loved family pet put down because they couldn’t afford life-saving treatment.
