As a vet in practice, I am often asked to help with the treatment of strays and wildlife. I’m happy to give my time for free, but what about the “hard costs”, such as drugs, xrays and other treatments. Who should pay for that?
I’ve written an article on this subject over at the Daily Telegraph
The subject of vets’ fees is always a tricky one: one respondent to a article I wrote on this subject has started a petition to have vets’ fees banned altogether. Yes, that would be a fine utopia, but who, then, would pay the vets?
