    Default Vet prices: 'I spent 12,000 on my pug'


    Alicia Healey's pug Dorothy has a chronic intestinal disease

    'I spent 12,000 on my pug'

    Alicia Healey and her pug Dorothy live in Hertfordshire. Dorothy was diagnosed with a chronic intestinal disease almost a year ago. It's an inflammatory bowel disease causing protein-losing enteropathy.

    Alicia manages Dorothy's disease using daily medication and a special diet of home cooking.

    She says her medical expenses for specialist consultations, ultrasounds, a biopsy, regular blood tests, urine tests and medication have cost her around 12,200 over a period of 10 months.

    "I don't have insurance for her - something I deeply regret now," Alicia says.

    "One of her medications, an immunosuppressant called ciclosporin, is about 90 for a 30ml bottle that I buy online. If I bought it direct from the vet it would cost me about 225 per bottle," she adds.

    No idea, good point, having said that if a car crashed into another car worth 500 would be written off.

    crash a car into 100 years old house, do they repair or write off?

    The car or the house?
    He who laughs last probably didn't get the joke.
