Bitcoin-Funded Chivo Pets Hospital in El Salvador Offers Treatment Costing $0.25

The Bitcoin-funded Chivo Pets, the first public veterinary hospital in El Salvador, opened its doors last month with an inaugural visit from President Bukele.

Far from being a gimmick, each service costs a flat rate of just $0.25, with the option to pay in Bitcoin via the Chivo Wallet or other cryptocurrency wallets. In contrast, an emergency vet visit in the U.S. can cost up to $8,000, giving unfortunate pet owners in this situation an unthinkable choice.
