In this photo taken on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015, veterinary student Katie Reynolds, center, observes as chief of oncology Dr. Nicole Leibman, left, and veterinary intern Dr. Samantha Schlemmer, right, prepare to examine a standard poodle named Bacchus for a possible oral mass, at the new Cancer Institute at Manhattan’s Animal Medical Center in New York. Experts say there has been a boom in recent years in high-end animal clinics using technologically advanced equipment and medicines that are the same as those in many human hospitals. And it’s led to a vigorous ethical debate whether such treatments, costing as much as tens of thousands of dollars per patient, should really go toward keeping pets alive. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)
