Meushi update

Meushi's visit today with meds was $438. The X-ray found a mild asthma but it's WAY too mild to be causing that chocking, breath robbing cough that she suffers from. There is a test that will determine if it's an infection but it requires putting her under anesthetic and flushing liquid into her lungs and getting it out again. Grand total for said test is $500!!! We're trying a couple medications first to see if they help. If they don't, then it's time for the $500 test.

You know I avoided getting pet health insurance because everyone told me that once your cat gets sick, the insurance companies come up with all sorts of excuses not to pay the claim. They are legally allowed to do so because they are not governed like human health insurance companies. However, in spite of the fact that they might not have paid for even half of this, I still wish I had purchased some. I had no idea I could rack up $1,000 worth of vet bills in just a couple weeks.
