I just got an estimate from my vet for an adult spay (18 months approx.) and a gastropexy as an additional procedure during the spay.
I was wondering if any of the vet/vet techs here could tell me if these are fair or high fees. I'm trying to decide if I should look for a different vet for this. I forgot to ask for the cost of hip and elbow x-rays during the spay.
Anyway, this is the quote:
Anesthesia and monitoring: $64.95
Pain management $27.10
(while in hospital)
PreOP Coag w/CBC $114.45
Gastropexy Addt. Procedure $647.35
The estimate states: treatment plan may range from $1198.85 - $1498.56.
I don't know where the other $300 comes from.
Love my vet and trust her, but money doesn't grow on trees. If these are way high prices I would look around. We have a good number of vets in my area.
Just looking for input....TIA!
