The visit to the vet.
Serves me right for boycotting our local, useless veterinary practice.
I took the cat to the vet near Mackay for treatment this morning. No mishaps this time.
They wanted over $300 for the same treatment, actually less... than the Sarina vet charged $193 for???????
OK.. it is a totally new building, purpose built . Also, the practice had recently treated a horse for Hendra virus and may be losing customers... BUT.... is that any good reason to charge so much extra?
Local vet charged $ 68 for vaccine, Ooralea vet, $130. Moral of the story is: always ask the prices for services. A lesson learned and no, I did not use that vet. Paid the $69.70 for the consultation and hot tailed it out of there.
I must say that the vet was so nice and a tiny little gorgeous blonde. Female!
