Las Vegas, NV
If I hadn't questioned the reasoning behind the "fix" for my cats upset stomach, the bill would have been over $500 dollars. The vet, I can't remember which one, recommended several tests right up front - they must have a quota of how much they get the customer to spend or something (this isn't the first time this has happened to me there). After I "convinced" the vet to do one test at a time, starting with the LEAST expensive (since her condition wasn't life threatening), I still ended up paying over $150 dollars to find out she had a simple infection that penicillin cured. I can only imagine how many people this tactic works on. It's a shame that you cant trust your vet not to rip you off. I live in the neighborhood right behind them and have gone there for the last 2 years for the convenience, but this visit was the last straw. Although I've had good treatment (that vet changed to another hospital) there are several other issues with the place; lengthly waits, pricey visits and not to mention rude receptionists. I'll never take my cats there again.
