Hi, I am a student from NTU mass comm, and currently I am writing an article on how due to the current recession, more and more people are sending their sick pets to be put to sleep, instead of treating them.
This is gathered from Dr Sing of Toa Payoh Vets, who commented that the number of pets sent to his clinic increased from about 5 per month last year, to about 10 per month this year. This is because treating the animals may easily cost thousands of dollars, while putting them to sleep is only $50-$100.
As such, I was wondering if anyone here had the experience of having to put their animals to sleep due to financial reasons? Or knows of someone who does? Cos I would like to hear their side of the story as well, before I proceed with the article.
If you'd like to share your story with me, please contact me at 83880757, or email to (babyhippokahei at gmail dot com).The article DOES NOT aim to critisize any party, but hopes to present a fair objective look on both sides of the argument.
PLEASE PLEASE do let me know if you know of anyone=( My article can't go on without your help=(
