Love this question!! I'm a vet.
People "knowing" how veterinarians don't really want to help the animals, but how we're making unnecessary stuff and treatment up for profit. Last summer I was attending my friend's wedding, and the gentleman sitting in the same table than us decided to let me know how he is aware of my profession's "little secret". In reality I studied for years and still keep going on this industry which is far from dancing on roses because I truly care about animals. I also will always let the owner know if I think that putting their loved one to sleep is the most humane way to go. After all these years my patients are still what keeps me going and what brings me genuine joy. I care about and like your dog more than I like you or the overwhelming majority of my fellow human beings, and I would never put you through expensive and painful cancer treatment if I didn't think it was the right choice. Now imagine how I treat your dog.
What kills me the most is the amount of people convinced that you can give toxic products to your dogs/cats, especially alcohol, because reasons and muh feefees. These people are everywhere, it's a shockingly common misconception. I've had the discussion about giving beer/wine to dogs countless times, i.e with my BIL's girlfriend. Unfortunately we're the ones who have to deal with the consequences when idiots pull this crap, and it's truly heartbreaking. There especially seems to be a new trend of people getting their pets drunk because apparently it's funny, and then filming it to social media (this Christmas we had a record number of dogs "accidentally" drinking alcohol). Please, dear humans, don't give a single drop of alcohol to your dogs. It's toxic, harmful and potentially life threatening (even very small amounts can be fatal). There is no way you can explain that away. Your dog might be your best friend, but beer is one thing you can't share with him. If you want to enjoy a bonding experience, give your friend something appropriate to enjoy.
My aunt feeds her dog beer. Daily.
I have no idea how this dog is alive.
I'm a mechanic by trade. A guy I know bought an older European sports car to fix up. It doesn't run, so he got it "cheap". I told him that it's definitely going to cost him way more than he thinks, and it's not going to be easy for him to do himself. Not to mention the difficulties of finding parts for it. He would probably save money if he just bought a new one.
He just blew it off and gave me some strange twisted reasoning about how he can do it cheaper and make it better. Ok dude, whatever. So far he's sunk thousands of dollars into it, and it still doesn't run. I believe that he's pretty well invested into the sunk cost fallacy at this point. Bye bye retirement fund.
And now I have a sudden urge to continue playing My Summer Car.
