A FAMILY has decided that if their dog ever needed veterinary treatment costing over £1000 they would not bother.
The Booker family recently spent £650 on a minor operation for their ten-year-old retriever Charlie, prompting the unofficial decision of a cut off point.
Father-of-two Tom Booker said: “We’re all very fond of Charlie, especially our youngest, but he’s getting on now and dogs are essentially quite similar.
“Obviously we’d pay to get his anal glands done or anything minor, but any serious stuff I wouldn’t want to go over a grand.
“I mean, that’s a holiday or the deposit on a car. I’m sure if he could talk he would agree that was fair enough.”
