My apologies.

I agree vet bills have gotten more expensive. My vet charges have gone up much higher rate than my salary (and I work gov't so I get half decent raises), but we are also doing more tests which will drive up the costs. Ultra sounds and biopsies were pretty much unheard of in the average vet office 20 years ago. Cats/dogs would be simply PTS when they became ill.
