    This vet I found was definitely on the "cheaper" side of the range for EPS. I was not willing to sacrifice a safe and successful surgery for less money but the other end of the spectrum was extremely more. As in outrageously more money for the same exact thing. And I felt satisfied that this person was very comfortable and confident with EPS. But I am also thinking that although experienced in EPS that perhaps this vet is not a bulldog "specialist". And is why I'm assuming he did not suggest the nares surgery as well. I may set up nares for a place that I know for a fact are experts with bulldogs. I guess it will depend partially on price because "specialists" tend to charge extreme amounts from what I have seen. I am happy with the outcome of whoppers EPS so I may stick with this "cheaper" vet depending on if I get a sense that he has performed nares surgery enough to be considered experienced.

    I hope this is ok to post , and I know different states are different prices, but,,,,,,,,,,, I'm just going to throw this out there as I'm in California and think a more expensive state so ......... anyway, for nares, entropian, and the eps,,, and a return visit for removal of stitches and re check, it was right at a thousand... A lot of money I know, but I was pleasantly surprised as I have heard some over 2500. 00... I'm lucky as Hanks dad is also his 'benefactor' so what hank needs hank gets as his daddy couldn't really keep him with him, and I was willing to take him off his hands with that stipulation... I know it would have been lots extra to do separately so if you really think the nares are in order,,, check if anything else needs doing so less 'under' time, and cost effective ?? It angers me at how the heck can costs be soooooooooooo different!! I can see state wize, but within an area. I was blessed to be referred to this vet as I would never have known there was even an available 'bulldog' vet... thanks to this place here, and a neighbor who knew my vet, I went into this comfortably as you did. anyway,,, I sure went all around on this one,,, but just things crossing my mind... Glad all is going well, sounds great I just wish they had advised nares if that indeed needs doing ;/

    $1000 is a great price for all of that. I paid $350 for EPS everything included. Surgery and everything involved, the overnight stay at the clinic and the the take home medicine. The next closest price that I found was $900. And that was just a "absolute least cost" without them knowing whopper or his history etc. I just couldn't justify paying that much unless that was simply the cost that every place charged. Obviously the health of the dog is first and foremost and if I felt that the extra $600 plus would have given me some guarantee that it was going to be a more successful and safe surgery and recovery and end result then I would have done it, but i really could not come up with a logical reason to do that in this case.

    EXACTLY!! if that was the going price (900) so be it, but sounds WAY out of line when the other was 350!! I would have done the same considering the same things you were considering... Seems that all is well, and that's what matters
