Here's the (highly typical) experience of our neighbors when ~ 4:00 pm on a
Friday they discovered their dog had a lump. Vet's office contacted, appointment scheduled for the next morning-
Saturday - dog examined, tissue sample taken, results from lab arrive
Monday - surgery scheduled for
Wednesday - successful removal of tumor, patient home
cost- all in ~$2000 - handled with pet insurance.
Six months (3.5 dog years) later their beloved pet is doing fine.
That's how private enterprise delivers health care to a dog.
Compare and contrast with how government delivers health care to humans.
