I have a six-year old yellow lab. Her name is Candy. I don’t care for the name, but she had that name when I got her, about 5 1/2 years ago. She has “thickened up” a bit over the last few years, but she doesn’t look fat.
I took her into the vet yesterday to get her spayed. I picked her up this morning (she’s doing well). I was looking over the line-item charges on the bill and noticed the $20 “obesity fee”. I guess the fat made the surgery a little more difficult.
Just imagine if your doctor tried to add an obesity fee to your bill.
