"Petulance" — not an ambulance for dogs

I mentioned that the people who work here don’t want anyone feeding their dogs.  Seems a little mean, since they’re so cute and treats make them so happy.  I concede that a couple of the Trupanion dogs visit the veterinarian with various allergies, sometimes food-related.   We don’t want the dogs to suffer, so we try to practice restraint.   The poor things don’t want to visit the doctor any more than necessary, just like humans.  (And, dog insurance notwithstanding, non-routine, non-emergency visits to the vet make their owners petulant if the condition may have been precipitated by their coworkers.)  Bear in mind–probably best not to feed someone else’s dog without asking, even if it’s a dog treat.
