The cost of pet care

We had a brief segment on the rising cost of pet care this morning. Dr. Steven Suter, medical director of the Canine Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at North Carolina State University, joined us to talk about what to consider when scheduling procedures for your pet, and when to let go.

We had full phone lines with a lot of great stories and we wanted to continue the discussion off air. We’re curious: Have you spent a lot of money on your pet – and was it worth it? Have you had to make the hard choice to put down a favorite pet? What kinds of things do you consider when making care choices for your pet? Let us know.
