Las Vegas, NV
You never see the same doctor twice. I've taken two dogs and two cats to this vet for the last 10 or so years, since they've opened. Six months ago my 15 year old cat woke up and could barely move. I rushed him over to my vet, and sat in a waiting room for an hour while the kid techs laughed and joked in the back room. It's very hard to sit for 45 minutes to an hour with your pet dying in your arms and listen to people laughing and joking when they could be helping...
After this, they took blood and xrayed my cat to the tune of 500 bucks, then told me they wanted to keep him overnight, just to call me at home two hours later, telling me to pick him up and take him to a 24 hr vet because it looked like his bladder had burst. I told them to please end his suffering and put him to sleep... Bill total: $650 bucks.
Tonight my other cat is at this vet... Bloodwork, Xrays, overnight hospitalization with IV and antibiotics... 505 bucks... If she has to stay tomorrow night too, because the urinalysis takes two days... $717.00 ~ I have no other vet to compare these prices to, but they seem truly outrageous.
The way they "sell you" the bill also feels like a car dealership. Just be prepared. I've had good dealings with this vet too, but most of them were when the hospital had just opened. They seemed professional and fair. Now I just feel taken advantage of every time I go in there.
Oh and also, be prepared to spend at least an hour waiting ... before seeing a vet and after they take your pet, before they return.
