As above. What does the initial consultation/check over cost you? (Not including treatment)

A consultation/general MOT cost me 15 yesterday compared to my last vet which was 25 as soon as you walked through the door!

Took kitten to the vets yesterday as she "wasn't right". Felt I was being a neurotic owner but she actually had a temperature of 105 so glad I went. Cost 22 for the consultation and 6 for an anti-inflammatory injection. She is a lot happier today so consider it money well spent.

The vet nearest to my house is 25 but if I travel 10 miles to the one near work it is 16 for a dog. Likewise for my hamsters it is 25 near me but 8.50 for the one near work! So I tend to use the one nearest to work, I just can't understand how there can be such a difference in price considering where I work is classed as a posh area compared to where I live!

Perhaps they are running a 'loyalty scheme' or your getting a discount for being a 'frequent visitor!!!!' http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

remember not all vets have the same standards. we are a Tier 3 Hospital Practice so our prices are a bit higher than some local practices - we have to have extra equipment and a general higher standard than the Tier 1 and 2 practices.

The consult fee is $80 but our vet is widely regarded as one of the best in NYC. He has helped us out on more than one occasion when we've gone to a more local vet and things have gone drastically wrong.

Here he is with his menagerie of pets http://www.horseandhound.co.uk/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

Consultation fee at our vets is 25.96. I tried another vets who only had a 12 fee, but the service wasn't half as good. I'd rather pay extra and know my animals are in good hands.
