It cost us 150 dollars to find out that the dog has a back problem (nerve and disk) that old dogs get. He is on strict rest for 4 weeks which is ironic since all he does is sleep and bark at an occasional squirrel. He is not supposed to jump on furniture or go down stairs. We only have a couple steps in our whole house so that isn't a problem but keeping him from jumping on the furniture will be impossible. They gave him a RX for some pills that are mostly chondroitin. Chondroitin costs about $1.99 at Walgreen's, but apparently more at the dog pharmacy, so you can see they didn't read his chart where it says "this dog has exceeded his out-of-pocket maximum".
