Just spent the last two hours on the phone trying to convince two dozen veterinarians to euthanise a stray dog hit by a car and most of them said that was "not possible" point blank and hung up. None were willing even if I agreed to pay a premium on their fee and offered to pick them up and drop them back. Frustration was growing into anger. One of the vets could make out my displeasure despite my best efforts at being polite, so he justified his refusal by saying he didn't work with strays because they weren't vaccinated and he didn't want to "catch anything" in case he got bitten. He advised me to stay clear of strays too. Watch out animal lovers of Coimbatore: veterinary whores abound.
