My dog just recently had a real bad episode last night. We swim with her all the time, however last night she managed to swallow ungodly amounts of water that put her at danger, Hyperhydration its called or Water Intoxication. Sounds farfetched I know, the Vet was surprised to see it. Basically what happened was to much water intake and the brain swells, changes in blood chemistry occur and cells die. We took her to the emergency vet, they examined her and quoted us a price to treat her. Naturally I choked when I saw the bill, but it wasnt enough for me to think twice about it. The question I'm posing in this thread is a generally touchy one. At what price is the Vet Bill so high its not worth paying? Basically the price where you as the animals owner decides to basically cut your losses and either put the animal down or take it home and let it run its course?
