2 PUPS IN GERMANY SHOULD BE PAID FOR BY WIRE THIS MORNING.... AND ARE SET TO ARRIVE MONDAY 11TH-- I WILL GIVE Y OU THE FLIGHT NUMBERS SOON SO WE CAN ALL WATCH FLIGHT CHECKER AS THEY CROSS TEH POND...
-- WITH ALL YOU CP'S-- CAN SOMEONE RESEARCH THIS TRANSFER OF MONEY.... AND FIND OUTR WHAT IS TEH CHEAPEST WAY TO PAY FOR SOMETHING IN EUROPE.. HAVING BLOWN UP AT TEH MANAGER IN MY USUAL BANK FOR JUST NOT HAVING THE CLARITY I INSISTED ON. I WENT TO BANK #2 AND SAVED $112- AND I STILL DO NOT KNOW HOW/WHY
AND I AM NOT SURE PAY PAL WOULD BE CHEAPER-- THIS NEEDS SOME SERIOUS ATTENTION.- IT APPARENTLY HAS TO DO WITH WHEN YOU CONVERT TO EUROS AND TEHN HOW PAYPAL GETS THEIR MONEY-- AND ARE TEHY A FRIEND OR A BUSIESS--- OR SOMETHIGN STRANGE.
TEH PLAN IS TO GIVE THEM SOME HOUSE TIME AND THEN PUT THEM IN KENNEL 10 SO WE CAN WATCH THEM.
i am going to get in trouble for this thought.
BRYAN CAME AND DID THE RABIES SHOTS AND SAID HE WOULD USE OUR NAME LIBERALLY AT THAT NEW "?CLINIC? " AT THE DEVELOPING TECH SCHOOL NEARBY. HE DOES NOT DO "SMALL ANIMAL SURGERY---AND WE GOT INTO WHY NOT??
HE USED TO-- BUT THE WHOLE THING HAS GOT RIDICULOUS-- WE TALKED ABOUT DR. CONNIE THIBEAULT, CONNIE WAS VET FOR ALOT OF TEH "BIG NAMED" PEOPLE- AND I SPENT TIME WITH HIM DISCUSSING THE WAY OF THE WORLD - ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS I STOOD AROUND WHILE HE OPERATED ON A DOG OR CAT-- ON A BENCH IN TEH YARD---I WOULD RUN BACK TO HIS SINK FULL OF INSTRUMENTS TO RINSE OFF WHATEVER HE NEEDED OR READJUST TEH "CONE" PROVIDING THE ANESTHESIA-- I THINK EITHER-- I NEVER HEARD OF HIM LOOSING ANY ANIMAL IN SURGERY- -- OR BLOWING UP A BUILDING WITH TEH VARIOUS EXPLOSIVE GASSES-
I WOULD HAVE HEARD ABOUT ANY SURGICAL ACCIDENT IF HE HAD ANY--- I KNEW HIM - AND ABOUT HIM FOR YEARS-... I KNEW ALOT OF HIS FAMILY TOO..
THAT SINK FULL OF HEMOSTATS AND SYRINGES WAS HIS STOCK IN TRADE.
BRYAN KNEW HIM TOO- AND WE GOT INTO --WHY HE WOULD NO LONGER DO SMALL ANIMALS BECAUSE OF THE VET ASSOC REGULATIONS-- BRYAN SAID HE NEVER WENT TO TEH EXTREME OF CONNIE AND HIS BENCH IN TH E YARD... BUT BRYAn HAD NEVER LOST AN ANIMAL DUE TO WHAT HE MUST NOW SPEND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ON EQUIPMENT TO PREVENT..
I HAVE WATCHED GEORGE-- WITH GLOVES MASK AND GOWN, EKG MACHINE.. OXYGEN MONITOR --and thought of connie....
I HAVE ALSO BEEN TOLD THAT DR POL HAD A RUN IN WITH TEH VET ASSOC. ABOUT HIS SURGICAL PROCEEDURES--- WHICH IS WHY AT TEH BEGINNING OF THE SHOW THERE IS A STATEMENT ABOUT EDITING FOR TV-- NOT SHOWING ALL THE DETAILS ETC...
TO GET DOWN TO MY LEVEL... IF YOU ARE A PERSON WORKING AT TEH MINIMUM WAGE OF $12 AN HOUR AND YOU ADOPT A PUPPY FROM A SHELTER.. THEN YOU GO TO THE VET TO GETIT SPAYED, And teh bill is AROUND $500 - you WILL haVE TO WORK OVER 40 HOURS-- TO PAY FOR THAT SURGERY--
SO YOU SKIP THAT AND JUST GET A RABIES SHOT- WHICH--( I CALLED AROUND) CAN VARY FROM $30 ( TEH BARGAIN PLACES) OR MORE NORMALLY $70 AND YOU WILL BE TOLD THT THEY MUST DO A PHYSICAL EXAM FOR $50 THEN THE SHOT $20. is that true???? wellllll......
I WILL LOOK THIS UP WHEN I HAVE TIME...- THE RABIES SHOT MUST BE GIVEN BY A VET -- I KNOW THAT -- MEDICALLY IT COULD BE GIVEN BY ANYONE-- BUT WOULD HAVE NO LEGAL STATUS IF SOMEONE GOT BITTEN.
TO HAVE A VET GIVE IT MEANS IT WAS DONE. TEH DOCTOR SIGNS THERI NAME- AND LICENSE - TO THat fact.
in the process the doctor can visually check to be sure the dog does not already have rabies.AND LOOKS BASICALLY HEALTHY . it is... in my opinion... the rule that got stretched to say teh dr must do a physical exam to be sure the dog is healthy-- so that is billed separately for $50--
i have watched these physical exams- pull up a gum, listen to the heart for 4 seconds stand up and saY "THAT IS $50 PLEASE" IT IS NOT-- WHAT SHOULD BBE CALLED A PHYSICAL EXAM FOR $50. AND IS SO QUICK THAT IT WOULD NEVER DISCOVER ANYTHING I AM NOT ABLE TO SEE MYSELF.
I CALLED AROUND WITHIN TH EPAST YEAR- AND WAS FASCINATED TOTHE RESPONSE ABOUT HE PHYSICAL EXAM- USUALLY GIVEN BY THE RECEPTIONEST---"WE HAVE TO BE SURE THE DOG IS HEALTHY BEFORE OUR DOCTORS CAN GIVE A RABIES SHOT AND TEH PHYSICAL EXAM IS $50."
BACK TO THE POOR $12/HOUR PERSON WITH THE NEW RESCUED PUPPY.. THEY WILL HAVE TO WORK 6 HOURS- JUST TO GET A RABIES SHOT.
HEAVEN FORBID THE PET HAS A BROKEN TOENAIL-
TOO OFTEN I HEAR "I CAN'T AFFORD A DOG/CAT" and unless you make $50 an hour.... that is true.
i also don't think i ever took my kids for a yearly physical- and no one ever offered to do a physical on tehm before tehy got any shot ( or polio drink)
nobody ever worries about not being able to afford kids.....
just another downward spiral of "the business mind" taking over.
