It had a lump so they want it pts? :mad: What sort of lump? I'm assuming they're asking for this before a diagnosis. It is horrible - like the recent case of the pregnant dog that the owners couldn't afford a c-section being pts. Vet care costs are a necessary part of pet ownership, not an option and should be taken into consideration before getting a pet.

That said, I do think sometimes vet treatments can go too far, whether it's the vets trying to push more treatment or owners doing everything they can to hang onto their pet when it would be kinder to let them go, but it doesn't sound like this is the case here.
