I'd like to know whats a small fortune??? I've spent around $2000 on 2 dogs in a year before and will probably spend that or more on our dogs we have now. Change vets if your getting ripped off, but suck it up that's life! Also I agree with Dee on the 17 year old and $10,000 I thought I was going to have to get a shovel to dig my way out of that load of crap!!
