    @cali baker, if you take them both at the same time is it still $50? or $100? I did not realize how lucky I have been. What an eye opener for me!

    I am charged an office visit, but I know now that it isn't as much as it was when I first started taking Tubs to the vet. We were going so much that we were actually given a "frequent visitor" rate! When we had to take him for follow up visits we don't get charged anything and sometimes they will give him a quick cleaning and nail trim without charging us! I do have to pay for the office visit, but there are things I don't have to pay for that I was expecting to pay for. I think we are paying $40 for the visits.

    Listen to this! My vet gave me a "senior discount"!!! Now I'm not technically of legal age..I assumed it was because I had taken in my "senior" cat. Well when I took a non senior pet in, I got the same discount! I told the girl that I'd thought it was because my animal was OLD..NOT ME! She laughed and said it's a quantity discount...but I really didn't care! I a discount!

    our vet charges 60$ for a visit, then meds are extra. If its a recheck its 40$ and if its a like re check on the recheck its free. he will trim the nails for free if we are already there for a visit but if we just drop in for nails its 10$.

    We have always paid an office fee.... started @ $30.00 seven years ago and it s now, i think $45.00. when we di both at once, it was cheaper for the second but i forget the amount. We've never paid for follow-up appointments - just for any meds. also, something we did that may help all of you, if you do not do this already - we have all their shots/annual wellness checkups done at the same time to save on trips to the office and save on the $$$$.

    Well, if it's any consolation, around here (southern California) my husband I just assume we'll need $100+ any time we walk in the door. I've started requesting specifically for a "tech only" visit for things like checking Lupe's ears, eyes and her PH level because when the Dr. is part of the visit they charge an "exam fee" on top of the test fees. Forget about adding an xray. I should really just set up a direct deposit account with them.

    Would shop around, but they take really good care of all my babies (2 dogs, 2 cats)

    I live in Sarasota, as you know. I take all 3 dogs to Dr K at Forrest Lakes animal clinic off of beneva. He never charges an office visit and he is very good. (Not a whole lot of personality though). His fees are the cheepest I've ever exp. I am looking, however, into another vet that specializes in bulldogs(also here in Sarasota) for when I get Bubba fixed. He was rec by another member. His name is Dr Steve Koch, Tuttel animal clinic. He also is a big contributor to the annual sarasota bulldog parade (need to find out when this is!). That's all I know.

    Our vet started off charging $25 and in the past four years it has gone up to $50 now. It is a lot in my opinion because as somebody else has already posted on here, they get a lot of their money off all the procedures they do and also by charging phenomenal rates for something that you can get off Amazon for half the price. For example, I was charged $25 for my first tub of Duoxo pads for Maggie's wrinkles that I can now get off Amazon for $7.50 plus shipping. That is some mark-up!!!!

    Shoot....I'm going to the same office for 35 years, they charge me for everything, and when I was taking all the kids at the same time, it was still $38 each + extra for nails and meds. So I decided it's easier to take them one at a time, since there's no advantage. Tell you the truth, after 35 years my dedication is running out. I'm feeling like they've been rushing me through, and the housecleaning there has alot to be desired. They've made lots of misdiagnosis since I have the bulldogs. My confidence in them has being running on empty. Yikes.
    I will see how it goes tomorrow with Griz's visit. Last chance.
    they've kept me coming back because they would take me in a heart beat with an emergency. even when I would bring stray's in.
    Life is like a box of chocolate covered
