The other day I was talking to a volunteer veterinarian who worked for a non-profit group that helped save animals and low-income pet owners. If you’ve ever had to take your dog to a veterinarian, you know how much it can cost. Many people who don’t have a lot of money can’t afford pet insurance, so they join nonprofit groups that provide pet care, where the owner does most of the work. . Many of these non-profit organizations also offer subscription-type guarantees where people pay monthly and bring their pet when needed.
Now the person I was talking to told me that people believe their pet insurance and services are cheaper than a regular veterinary clinic. He said this because he noted that the prices for local regular clinics were about the same for surgery and other types of pet services. It turns out that their pet insurance costs and subscription premiums are very similar to those of external providers who offer pet insurance through local resellers of veterinary clinics. In other words, just because a group says it’s not for profit doesn’t mean you get the best deal for the pet services or pet insurance they offer .
Normally, you would think it doesn’t make sense, because a nonprofit group doesn’t have to pay huge amounts of money and no owner takes the profit. The reality is that for-profit veterinarians are very effective because they have to be – because they run a business. Therefore, they can make a higher volume with a number of people they have on their staff, and they can render services more efficiently and sometimes with more knowledge. The best vets end up working for themselves, most of them don’t work in non-profit organizations, although some do, so it’s not fair to make a general statement either.
It is a pity that so many people find out that the cost of saving their pet is too high and realize that they cannot afford it, and therefore end up putting their pet on the ground or moving away. The gentleman told me horror stories where dogs, cats or other animals were injured and had a treatable or repairable problem that could have been resolved by surgery. However, the owner had neither the money nor the balance of a credit card allowing him to do these services. Therefore, he took another option, put the animal to sleep, also known as sleeping l ‘animal. Indeed, I hope you will want to think it over and think about it, and do what makes sense to you and your pet.
