My vet is perfectly fine and the treatment we receive is very good, I have absolute no issue with it except for the expense (it was a private practice but is now part of medivet) compared to previous vets I have used it seems a lot more expensive.
I have had another vet recommended to me (vets4pets actually)which is further away in the next larger town but it's still within comfortable driving distance. Is it okay to ring them to compare quotes? or do you feel it's better to always stick with the same practice? I don't think the vets at my current practice have necessarily built a good relationship with my dogs as they see a different vet every time anyway (although as I say the care has always been fine)
I would just like a bit of advice really. I have only ever changed before due to moving house/area and unfortunately one of my vets committed suicide
I compared quotes before getting my dog neutered, although wasn't necessarily looking for cheapest, just the best overall. Was upfront when I spoke to receptionists and they were fine. One practice, the most expensive, said dog must always have a blood test and IV. Others gave good reasons why not needed for my particular dog, also different ideas re stitches and follow up. In the end decided to go with the vets we were with, not the cheapest but best for us.
well I emailed them both and would you believe it, as I have been registered with my vet for a while now they have given me a different quote to when I first registered her and it's a lot cheaper than what they originally quoted! so as I know them I will book her in with them
sorry for being such a sad sap! I find discussing money really difficult when it comes to my animals plus I am worried about having her done anyway, but it needs to be done
