In September, 2012, Havoc came into our office as a new patient.  After several days of refusing to eat, his owners were very concerned.  A few days of monitoring and some diagnostic radiographs revealed that Havoc needed surgery to remove a foreign body from his digestive system.  Havoc's owners were devastated, as they were still reeling from recent major medical expenses incurred by one of the family members.  This now necessary surgery for Havoc was sure to add to their financial crisis.  Fortunately, the

Boo's owner had recently incurred a large bill as a result of necessary cruciate surgery for their other pet, a Labrador Retriever.  So, in April, when Boo needed surgery to remove several foreign objects from his stomach, his owners cringed.  How could they responsibly add to their large debt with us when they were struggling financially due to recent cuts in their family income?  To quote Boo's owner, "This new surgery, if paid in full, would be a severe hardship for our family.  We... would
