I just wrote of my experience at Banfield Pet Hospital, San Juan Capistrano, CA.
I forgot to add that, when the vet learned that I had owned the guinea pig for less than a month, and that he was under warranty, she just said, get a new pig for free.
So according to her, there are no problems, because I can supposedly use the meds for another animal, and I will (maybe) get a new guinea pig for free.
There is a word I learned while watching a murder trial: it's "fungible." Fungible means that one thing replaces another and is interchangeable. So in this murder case, a lady killed her child, then had another baby, and just acted like the new baby replaced the dead one, because there is no difference between children.
So I would make the point that this veterinarian has no concern for my bond with this particular pet, because another guinea pig is just as good. I find this distasteful.
