Health Care for a Turkey


Thanks to KM for alerting me to the Massachusetts woman who wants help to pay for eye surgery for her pet turkey named Jerry. It seems Jerry has cataracts and he can't see his food to eat independently or fly with his girlfriend turkey, Penelope.

The cataract surgery for Jerry could cost up to $2,600, according to his owner. Medicare pays $2,338 total (including surgeon, facility fee and anesthesia) for a cataract extraction.

Jerry is one lucky turkey, especially this close to Thanksgiving.
