I have always thought that our vet bills were expensive, and the map confirms it. We live in one of the most expensive states.

I noted that too, and I thought for sure I would be in the "most expensive" area. I was surprised to see differently, and I am wondering if it has to do with population and availability of services. I can drive a mile in any direction and pas at least four veterinary offices and three major specialty hospitals are all within a fifteen minute drive so I am wondering if competition is a sort of mitigating factor on cost?

We live in the 2nd LEAST expensive state We go to a small practice that has very basic décor. It's obvious they don't spend much on looks! They have some very good vets and techs their too.

I am in this small Texas coast town of 4000 last census. We have one vet here in town. However, his hospital is rated as one of the top 10 in design in the country. He has an in house lab, does x-rays and sonograms. Separate isolation, the ICU has heated cages. He has 4 exam rooms, two for cats and smaller dogs, two for larger dogs.

he did knee surgery on both knees of my golden retriever, KaycCee, the first at 16 months, the other 14 months later at age 2 1/2. She got taken by cancer just before her 9th birthday and she never had a problem with those knees. If he runs into something he doesn't KNOW he can fix, he sends you to a specialist in Houston or San Antonio, or sometime Corpus Christi.

Peole drive 25 miles out from Corpus to have him treat their pets. One guy whose lab swallowed a golf ball brought the dog down from Dallas--400 miles, for my vet to do the surgery. He also treated the state's top arson dog, a malinois (probably didn't spell that right.)

He has always had reasonable prices, but had start charging morelast year due to horrible increase in insurance (you know, hurricane, tornadoes spun from hurricane, etc) and taxes. An exam is now $45.A 6 pack of Interceptor HW prevention for dogs up to 100 pounds is $55.
