    We have deer in our neighborhood and roses are their very favorite food! Not even thorns deter them...As far as the aspca charging ..since they are a charity run organization..I presume they might make some $$ off this?? I agree that is really steep..but maybe if you were somewhere where there was no help available it would be worth it. I am not justifying it..just trying to give them the benefit of the doubt. They do a lot good things for animals and I am sure there is liability and costs they must cover.

    I just posted a number that only charges $35 to answer a question...and sometimes you can't learn the information on the computer. Like in my case...Ahsoka had gotten a packet of cold pills...She's also MDR1 and I was concerned. It was worth peace of mind of $35...but $65 that is a lot of money...The $35 includes if there is a problem...And the vet you go to isn't current on how to treat such a case...they will advice the vet as to how to proceed. So...if you look at the bigger picture...the $35 isn't to bad. But that's almost half of what the other place charges!!!

    I was going to say I suppose some fee isnt too bad cuz you figure to get a vet to respond costs money I suppose but seriously 65 bucks?!?!?! 35 is a little more appropriate although I bet they would make more money if they charged closer to 15 or 20.

    I agree..$65 is a lot..our emergency vet here is $65 .. One time our dobie got 1 frickin' pellet of a rat poison..err hubbies fault..and she weighed 115 lbs. We called and they (emerge vet) wouldn't give us any advice at all without seeing her..so off we went to have her tummy pumped and she got activated charcoal. Later our vet told us that 1 stinking pellet wouldn't have bothered her at all..ha ha..our wallet was much lighter tho..by about $500..lesson learned? From then on my hubby listened when I nagged him to keep zoe (dobie) away from what he was doing!

    So glad they are not poisonous! So strange the things they decide to eat! Wow $65, thats outrageous! My vet is open 24 hrs and never has any problem answering my questions (which I have done, 5am call after Sam's first head tremor and countless times after he swallowed a toy LOL) free of charge. Guess I won't be calling that hotline ever!

    I bet Vegas felt he needed some vitamin C and the roses looked good enough to eat! Now, @KMARINO that would be a cute picture!

    How crazy for them to try and get that much money. $5 would be too much. Poor Vegas. I am glad he is ok, only now do I think its hilarious he ate your roses. v
    I didn't do it
