Wow did I get the shock of the year the other day when it came to getting a lump removed from my Ollie... As we were new to the area (Tallebudgera QLD) we were unsure about which vet to take him to, so I decided to send out some emails to enquire about what the costs etc it would be, as much relevant info was given including photos and the size of the lump etc, I asked if there was any more information that the vets required & if so to just ask via a return email and that I would answer accordingly, These were my replies;
$800.00 plus extras
$690.00 all inclusive
$450.00 all inclusive
Require consultation first $50.00
$380.00 all inclusive
$320.00 all inclusive
The vet charging $380.00 also offered a free consultation, so we made an appointment with him to discuss the procedure in more detail, we left feeling comfortable that we had found the right place.
The procedure went extremly well and we have now found a fantastic vet.
Has anyone else come across such wide margins on costs within the Vet industry when it come to surgery?
