    Default How much is the average vet call out fee?

    Can anyone tell me how much an average vet call out fee is?

    Its a bit of a funny request because I am the loaner and the owner got the vet out to my horse on Friday due to sudden lameness - I want to pay for it and she doesn't want me to!

    I want to take some money up and try and give it to her - but don't know how much the bill would be! (she won't tell me becuase she says she is paying!!)

    I full loan him ( he is her old boy, she has another horse too) but on a very relaxed agreement so we have no agreement on who pays what - but generally we end up arguing over who is going to pay becuase we both feel we should! (I know most people have the opposite problems between owner and loaner but hey, we like to be different!!)

    Can anyone give me a rough guide. Vet came during normal hours, 4.30pm on Friday, and just did a check up and pinch test for an abcess. Didn't give any drugs she just poulticed foot. Didn't need to leave leave any other supplies as we already had stuff to re-poultice.

    Thanks

    Its about 25 miles but the vet was already just 5 minutes round the corner on another call so she popped in as we said it wasn't an emergency so could wait if necessary.

    Don't judge a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes.

    By then, you're a mile away....wearing his shoes.

    My vets charge 22 to come out and they are less than a mile down the road!

    I would guess the whole bill would of come to between 40 and 60
