the Vet

April 2nd, 2007 at 12:49 pm

I took my cat to the vet Friday because she's been throwing up. $270.00 later I was told she might possibly have pancreatitis and that I should just switch her food to a sensitive stomach formula. I also had to purchase a flea&tick/heartworm/earmite preventative combo that is $15 a dose but with six doses you get one free. It seems like there is no end lately to the little financial crises that keep cropping up. Hopefully this will be over soon and I can get back on track.

    I've been through the vet bills. I have one coming up this month for the yearly exam and vaccinations. Any chance you could shop around for a less expensive vet? I always thought that all vets would cost roughly the same until I started investigating. I used to pay $90 for the once-a-year exam with vaccinations. I now pay $61.
    While you can't ask about every possible fee, I find that a good predictor of overall costs is to just ask what they charge for spay/neutering. If a particular vet charges less for this service than others than chances are the fees for other services are lower as well.
