With His Daughter’s Dying Puppy In His Arms, Vet Turns Away A Distraught Dad

When we humans are sick, we have a couple of options when it comes to treatment. We can either head over the offices of our general practitioner and explain to him (or her) what ails us, or if things are really bad, walk into a clinic or hospital ER and throw ourselves on the mercy of the staff. In the end, we hope for a happy result, a successful diagnosis, and a treatment we can accept and live with (LIVE being the key word).

Heartbroken, he left the People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals.
