Fact is, most owners do not care to get the facts. They rely on myth and old wifes tales about the life and needs of their pets. Facts are misplaced and replaced with myths and so on for ease of dealing with reality. Not that all are out to do harm, just that many do not seem to accept the fact they are wrong and doing harm to their pets. The get pi$$ed, upset, sit back in denial and generally get defensive when the truth roles out from the docs mouth.
I have never heard a word so true in my life. That is EXACTLY what I noticed. Maybe breeders or those selling puppies should inform potential buyers on what they are instore for. With pet insurance now, it is DEFINITELY worth the small monthly fee.
