I know it's terrible to think this way and I would spend every last penny on my dog, but sometimes I feel like I'm being taken advantage of. In the last 3 months, I have spent over $3000 in vet bills on my dog. I just dropped close to $400 on the bill again a couple hours ago. It was suppose to be a quick check up since he was neutered last month but he also vomited today at 3AM and 5AM so my vet suggested blood and urine work, fluid injections, yet another new diet, more supplements (on top of all the ones I bought the last 2 months from them) and more topical sprays (that I have already bought from them) because he still has skin allergies. My poor dog has now had 3 blood and urine samples done in the last 3 months and I am now beginning to wonder if it is necessary. Especially since while I was paying, one of the nurses made a comment saying that I must be very well off (and I was dressed like crap today in my jeans and hoodie) which kind of bugged me a little because I interpret that as a clue saying that I shouldn't be dishing out this much money for their services? Now I feel like a terrible "parent" to my dog for having these somewhat stingy/frugal thoughts.
