In Loving Memory Of Hank

This is my first time to post and thought what the heck. I thought that maybe this might help me ease the pain of losing a loveable friend and famliy member. Yesterday I lost my daughters and my Lab Hank due to Parvo. He died in my arms at 8 in the morning. I took him to the vet Monday and they wouldn't help me due to I didn't have the money to put up front to take care of him. You know the vet even tried to get me to apply for Pet Care Credit and I did and got turned down. Why do vets do this some act like it is only an animal an don't think that animals are like family to a family. So I looked on the web to try to see if I could help him till today when I got paid. I tried everything and I feel like I failed him and my daughter. He was only 6 months old and was one of the most loving friends you could ask for.

Im so sorry for your loss.
parvo is a devistating thing to experience.
Hope everyone recovers from this tragedy in a timely manner and you can all remember Hank for the love he shared with you in his short time with you...

How sad:sad: I don't have a dog,but I've learned Parvo is treatable but very expensive.
I am very sorry for your loss and the fact if you are poor,the pup has to die.
It's always a good idea,to try to put away a little bit of money,in case something like this happens.Petownership can be very expensive,but it's too late now for your pup:sad:
