Bo-'Bama Care?





Dear Bo,

I recently went to see a specialist Vet-human.  Did you know medical care for us canines is REALLY EXPENSIVE?  Especially us big doggies.

So I was wondering, do you have 
BO-'Bama Care???  If so, sign me up.

Thanks,

Bart von Weiler
California

Good luck Bart.
Paying vet bills for my dog has really made me appreciate our National Health Service...
Cheers, Gail.

Reilly-Denny Cowspotdogs said...

it would end up likes ours - they wouldn't cover any per-exisiting conditions

Ryker said...

We used to have pet insurance but found that if we just have a savings account of our own for pet care it worked out to be a better deal.

Sue said...

They do have pet insurance, but it adds up too.

Hi Y'all!

Greyhounds CAN Sit said...

Good luck with Bart. If I'd had a child I'd have encouraged it to be a vet!

Big Honey Dog (Honey the Great Dane) said...

Ha! Ha! Ha! Oh Bart - that's hilarious!

But yes, as a fellow BIG doggie - vet bills is certainly no laughing matter! My humans have pet insurance for me but I'm on a special list of breeds that has extra high premiums. Sigh. Still, they're glad they've got it coz it has paid for itself several times over, especially since I've gotten older and with my glaucoma & heart sickies./

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Going to the vets is just one reason I didn't get another dog!! Just one reason!!!!!
I am so sorry Brat --are you still not doing well??????????? Bless your heart!

Alfie said...

Put me on that list too! hehe. When I first came out of the shelter I was a treasure chest full of ailments :P Poor animals out there are dying because their owners can't afford to get their pets treated :( I'm thankful for all of the animals in blogworld who are able to share pieces of their lives through pictures and words. May they stay healthy and their owners too :D

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Bart, what a great idea! You know when you have vet responsibilities for an entire Army, a little insurance would go a long way...I am going to get momma to write to our Congressmen!

bettyj said...

Dasko has gone to the Rainbow Bridge, but I will still be following this blog to get my Rott fix. The first time in 28&1/2 years I have not had a rott to love.

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I came to thank you for all the love and caring and prayers that you have been sending to me while I have been sick. I am still fighting to get better.
Thank you too for all the love and prayers for my moms.
I do not have words to tell you how you have touched our hearts, Thank you for all the love .
forever
your tweedles

Hahaha! That's funny! But like your concern, pet care is also expensive in our country. We want Philhealth for our pets too.
