Youthful American Couple have put in $155K in three years on doctor's visit expenses for their pet puppy
Kate and Ben Stern from Brooklyn have spent $155,000 worth of medical
treatment over the past three years on a French Bulldog they adopted in
2013 and named Jones. They love him so much he played the very important
role of ring bearer at their wedding. Things however turned sour few
months after his adoption when he began vomiting and later choked on his
own vomit and got pneumonia. The couple went all out in a bid to save
the life of their beloved pet.
Ben, a software developer at Dropbox, said: 'Your pet's life shouldn't
have to be a financial decision.'
Jones's first visit to the vet following the initial vomiting saw him being put on the ventilator, which cost $10,000.
With a 30 percent chance of survival, he was moved to a pet hospital where his five-day stay cost $50,000.
Since his initial visit, Jones has been put on a ventilator three times
as he suffered from chronic lung and esophagus problems. The couple's
medical bills have come out to around $155,000, much of which has been
covered by pet insurer Trupanion.
Kate, a manager at Uber, said: 'Our savings has taken a pretty big hit,
but it's worth it to keep Jones with us.'
Jones takes nine pills a day and his condition is improving.

PlayStation VR works with other consoles The PlayStation VR doesn't just work with the PlayStation 4. As it turns out, the virtual reality headset can actually accept any valid HDMI input, albeit without the full virtual reality experience. When the PlayStation VR is connected to a regular HDMI output, such as an Xbox One, the headset displays content in a 'cinema mode.' In this mode, a large 2D screen covers most of your field of view, as if a cinema screen was positioned a meter or so from your face. Move your head and the screen stays in place. The fact that the PSVR can accept inputs from any HDMI source gives it a leg up on its headset competitors, the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. Both of these headsets are designed for PC games, and support non-VR content from a PC in a cinematic mode similar to the PSVR, however neither headset works with standard HDMI sources from a console or other device. This extra functionality built in to the PSVR could make it a decent portable TV…
