I guess I really don't know. It would depend on the circumstances, and the cost of treatment. If I already have the animal & something happens, I would do everything I could afford to do to take care of the needs. We do have a cat (Ebony) who developed diabetes, and later an intestinal problem. We adopted him in 2000, so he is about 13 or so. I did lots of research about food for his diabetes, we put him on Wellness Core cat food. The food did regulate his diabetes so we did not have to give him insulin for more than a couple of weeks. Then he developed some kind of intestinal problem (could be cancer, we don't know), so he now has to eat an RX diet & take meds. He is doing well, has gained weight back & keeps my dogs in their place. Ha !!
If you haven't failed, you haven't lived !
Laugh, and the world laughs with you !!
