I brought my cat in because he swallowed a small bit of onion that is supposed to be poisonous. The receptionist presented me with a long list of suggested treatments, totalling to about $1200, and asked me to sign for consent. I told her I needed to speak to the doctor about these items before I would sign, and she cautioned that there wasn't much time--they needed to begin treatment soon. I told them I would consent to the emetic and the charcoal (does charcoal even bind to onions?) Then the doctor came to speak to me about the other treatments in the same hurried, gotta-save-your-cat-NOW sort of way.
But it as it turns out, none of the others were that necessary. I escaped with only a $250 bill and a cured cat.
