Vet could have helped situation

To the editor:

While reading “Random Acts Of Kindness” article by local vet Dr. Patrick Paradis (Aug. 20 edition of Woodburn Independent), it became abundantly clear he is no participant or candidate of what he speaks.

He will gladly and happily accept the cost of saving the life of an injured animal from a concerned and heartfelt regular customer. He would rather euthanize the maimed but repairable animal than to donate his services or oath to the maimed animal of a poor loving owner in dire straits.

Today’s vets have no compassion for the injured animals they pretend to administer to in good faith. They only care about the cha-ching music that rings constantly and daily in their practices.
