Our italian greyhound pup broke his leg 6 weeks ago. It was operated on at a very expensive but capable emergency clinic, as it was after hours.
It's healed well, and he is walking & running on it again. It was a plate & screw type fix, nothing needs to be removed or anything.
I called to book his follow up x-ray today & was advised that it would cost $495 - probably so expensive in part due to possibly needing to sedate him. He is a good pup though so I doubt that will even be necessary.
I find that crazy expensive - we've already spent $4000 at this vet. So I said no, don't worry about it.
Should I take him elsewhere? Is a follow up x-ray even necessary?
