“Just let your pet die”

These are words that some people may have heard at some point or another, “just let your pet die.” When our little ones become ill, the vet bills can get very high. It really sucks and breaks our hearts and wallets.

As I write this, I’m thinking about Calbee, and how heart wrenching it was to watch her die. I keep asking myself if maybe we could have saved her if we did something differently. Calbee was about 16 years old, and it was her time to go, but none of us wanted to say goodbye. She died of natural causes, and we miss her very much.

“Letting the pet die” is simply not an option for most of us. If the pet can be saved, we will do everything in our ability to save the pet. Our dogs, cats, and other pets are like our children. Some people just don’t understand that. They don’t get the bond that we form with our four legged furry friends. They get older just like we do, but their life span is shorter. Generally speaking, we outlive our pets.

I’ve seen people get into thousands of dollars in credit card debt trying to save their pets. Sometimes the medical treatment works and sometimes they die anyway. However, I don’t think that any person would have given up despite the dire outcome. We just love our pets too damn much.

Practically speaking, I know that it’s more affordable and financially effective to “put them down,” but if there is a chance that we could save them, we won’t give up.

So to you fuckers who don’t own pets, if you’ve never raised a puppy, if you’ve never been a fur parent, then you have no idea how much we love our pets. So stop telling us to kill our fucking fur babies you insensitive fucks!
