Vet Expenses

September 12th, 2012 at 07:39 pm

I went to our new vet. Office visit was $37.50. The vet diagnosed our kitty with a UTI and prescribed two weeks worth of antibiotic. One week of the antibiotic is $25. Today, I paid $64.25 total since there is tax on the prescription.

He wants me to come by next week for the other strip of antibiotics, since he was hesitant in prescribing it in the first place...couldn't feel her bladder (she is overweight) and could not extract anything. "If she's worse...then we'll need to do something else anyway." said the vet.

I sure hope he doesn't charge me such a hefty fee for another office visit if I only need the rest of the antibiotic.

Pet care adds up fast. Glad I have cash to pay for it!

    Our diagnostic office fee is $55. Our recheck fee is $35.
    If we saw you again for the same issue it would be a recheck visit.
    Good luck with kitty, I hope she feels better very quickly! Smile

    Aw, poor kitty Frown Sounds like a reasonable fee.

    Our vet is pricy too, but he's such a character, that at least we're entertained/distracted depending on the reason for the visit - and sometimes that is well worth the bill. Hope kitty is better soon!

    Thanks LF, I think it will likely be a recheck. If not, I'll ask about it. Glad my fees are cheaper than your office. My last vet was $15 each time.

    Thanks for the good wishes...I'm sure she will feel much better by tomorrow!

    I'd ask about the fee before you go if kitty is feeling better. Worth a phone call.
