Vets are ripping us off left and right. While we paid over $3,000.00 for Vet bills when out dog had to have his eye surgery I think it totally ridiculous the prices they charge for medication. There was a medication that I had to get for my dog and it was for his eye. The Vet charged over $40.00 for the small tube. I found it on-line, no prescript needed, for about $12.00. The charges they charge for an office visit is crazy. We pay $65.00, just for the office visit! I would never leave an animal to fend for itself--that is animal cruelty. I would never leave it die in the yard either for the same reason. We do need to have a voice though and tell the Vets we know what they are doing and we need to be more diligent in finding if we can get the drugs for cheaper prices.
