Vet Bills
Having seen a number of people on this forum complain about the hundreds of rands they have to spend keeping their pets healthy, I have a suggestion.

Since it is almost Christmas bonus time, it might be a good idea to put some of that away for next year's vet bills. If you only spent 10% less on eating and drinking too much and buying presents that will be discared before the end of the day, you should have a nice sum saved.

There is a pet "medical aid" available that may be worth looking into. About 2 months ago one cyber owner commented on the cost of veterinary bills and I said I would respond as soon as more of you made your comments. I have not seen too many more comments so please do let me know what you think and I will respond next week. To put a sum away each month is like having your own "Pet aid" I guess but unfortunately if an urgent procedure is required it will deplete such funds.
