    Luckily mum paid yesterday emergency fee of $300 so I get today's bill!
    I know everyone keeps saying why did I bother for a chicken, but she isn't just a chicken she is a pet! And I'd do the same for any pet!

    Plus I couldn't let her suffer!!
    It was going to cost $200 to euthanize her or $300 to fix her! To me that was a no brainer lol! Specially when it wasn't life threatening!

    Glad Wilma is doing better. I paid nearly $500 at the vet when our snake burnt herself on a heat lamp a few winters ago.

    Exactly it's too hard not to help them when they are suffering! It's really surprising how many people won't pay for their pets to get better! Glad you got your snake fixed :)

    Yeh I think it was the right choice for her as she is only 18 weeks old.. She deserves to live a long life like any animal! And she sure is enjoying being in the garage away from the 5 others :) she is right outside my bedroom inside and she is loving the quiet!

    Man, are they ripping you off. $200 to give a chook the green dream is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too much. A few months ago, I had a 27kg red heeler put to sleep. The vet made a home visit, and the cost was still $175.

    Glad all is well with Wilma, and you are happy at the result.
