Has anyone else been dumbstruck by vet fees?

I have had friends, famliy members and even strangers tell me about sad stories involving the decision as to whether or not they should pay an astronomical vet bill to save their ailing or injured pet, or if they should just let Nature take it's course.
This conundrum seemd like a no brainer to me, until my family was faced with the impending death of an agressive cancer in a beloved four-legged member of our close knit clan.

The expenses of taking care of a human member of my family would never cross my mind in the decision making process.
If someone I love is hurt or sick, regardless of the expense, I would make sure that they got the medical care necessary, even if it meant rasing money through unorthodox methods.
Unfortunately, the same is not often enough true with pets.

I would love to hear feedback about anyone's experiences with the overwhelming costs of Veterinary care for pets.
I know that this may require Kleenex, but I am hopiing to find a solution through as much input as I can get.

Thank you,
Amy Smith
