Vets are great, until you realise that your beloved pet is not insured and you have to foot the bill. Seeing a vet bill come out of your bank account is eye watering.
Yes, I’ve recently had to hand over a wad of cash to vet.
My French bulldog, Percy, jumped from a step and landed awkwardly breaking his ankle. Unfortunately, surgery and letting it heal was not an option. He would have suffered from the pain for the rest of his life. The only options given to us was for him to be put to sleep, or to amputate the leg.
If any of my readers have pets, you would know that the only realistic option was amputation. Yes, we are going to have a doggy tripod!
The cost of the amputation ... £1500. Whilst it might seem a lot of money, it is money well spent. We have a 1 year old dog that we are told, despite the amputation will lead a relatively happy and healthy life.

In the world of accountancy, tax and work, I have nothing to report. Some things in life are more important than work.
Sorry for the soppy post, but I thought I’d blog about something a little different.
