Had to vent a bit although in all honesty there was no hesitation in my approval. Our boxer, Brutus, has a hematoma on his floppy ol' ear. Looks like a bean bag right now. Going to cut it out and fix it along with pulling a couple teeth I have been holding off on them yanking. $300-500 estimate from the vet for all procedures combined. My wife was surprised I wasn't more upset. I kinda expected a decent sized bill, this was on the lower end for the two procedures combined vs. what I was expecting. I was thinking they might tell me $5-800. $3-500 for a couple surgical procedures at the vet sucks, but c'mon, he is like another kid to me. Like a pain in the ass to my wife. Maybe that is why I love him so much. Reminds me of myself! If he was 10yr old I would hold off, but at 7-8 with another 3-5 years left in him, I told them to fix the ol' boy up! Going to miss that husky bark for the night if someone pulls in the driveway. Just had to vent. Thanks for listening.
