Opinion: Dog surgery cost estimate clarified

I am writing to submit a clarification to the information presented in the article “Dog Gone Lucky,” that appeared in the Monday, March 2, edition of the Addison Independent.
The estimate for the original surgery was accurately quoted by Mr. Flowers; however, I wish to correct any impression that it was an estimate given to us by the Middlebury Animal Hospital. The estimate was arrived at by Homeward Bound staff based on previous experience in private practices and included all anticipated costs associated with caring for Pico, from his initial X-rays to his post-surgical care.
In addition, the estimate was cushioned to account for the percentage taken by the fundraising platform and was at the high end of the range to enable us to address any unforeseen expenses associated with his care.
The overwhelmingly positive response to our pleas for Pico shows once again what an involved and caring community Addison County is and we are proud to be part of it.
