Same thing in Sweden. I just had the opportunity to compare - elderly relative and the family Cairn terrier both needed health care....the vets won hands down!
(The health care for humans is of course “soclialized”, the vets are private businesses.)
soclialized = socialized
Be interesting to see a chart of vet cost vs human cost plotted for the last 50 years - Maybe the old people in the next ten years will being seeing the vet for personal care as well as eating dog food if we let the fascists take control
you have a link on that?
