When I was showing dogs in Canada, I had a great vet. We had a great relationship. He's likely dead by now. I get that they have expenses, but prices have gone nuts.This is why I will not be getting more dogs or a cat when the ones I have pass. I will just have one Dobie and my chickens.
The vet I used for decades was very reasonable and affordable and everyone in the area was on a waiting list trying to become a client.
Then the owner retired and sold the practice. Up went the prices so the new ownsers could expand the practice and double the size of the staff and building. I'm not so convinced the quality of the care doubled with the size & staff. They are, after all, refusing to do the surgery when the original vet did the same surgery just over 2 years ago to remove that last two MCTs. And her heart was bad then and she wasn't on the Sotolol. Her cardiologist at Cornell said she would give an anesthesia protocol if required.
