I work for a vet... The only time animal services get involved is when you're NOT using a doctor. They wouldn't get involved even if ten of your animals are put down. We can't even call animal services when pets obviously are abused because the fact that theyre in the vets office means "they're getting treatment". So animal services shouldn't be involved.

y would u not just take a big rock to their heads and kill them instead of paying vet bills??... (im assuming u dont have a gun cuz if u did we both kno u wouldnt have taken it to the vet wink wink) Just thinking now... how does a cat get a broken neck?

the gun idea is actually not that great... After a few painful memories of taking old dogs to the vet over the years, holding them still for expensive injections, and then as they died, my dad suggested we give the old girl a quick, cheap, pain-free bullet to the head -I gave her a delicious pork chop to eat so she`d go out happy... 3 bullets later... turns out head-shots do not always equal immediate, pain-free deaths... We`ll be sticking to vet calls in the future....

Aww im so sorry about your animals, but how did the cat break it's neck? I wouldn't blame animal services for being suspicious. Cats get injured often, but broken necks aren't that common I think. Especially at the same time your horse has to be put down. Again, sorry. I love animals, too.

ha ha I WOULD SAY THAT TOO BUT........................................ YEAH AND PS MY FML DIDN'T GET POSTED: Today, I woke up and looked at myself in the mirror. My roommate had drawn all over my face in Sharpie. I have an interview in 2 hours. FML.' Your FML wasn't published on the website.
