More lurcher problems


Recommended Posts

My old girl (11 in Sept) has developed a couple of lumps on her teats, vet diagnosis, removal and speying, another £700 coming on top of the £700 I spent on the old dog last month. 

Glad I'm still working 🙄 

Cheers, D.

Thats very expensive dy. 

Lad I work with had the same done with his Russell last year with the vet I use, cost 160 quid. 

If he'd have used his regular vet that does his farm work it would probably have cost similar to yourself.

Never ceases to amaze me what vets can get away with charging when it comes to pets.

My vet did something similar to one of mine for €80, she took it out on her kitchen table, she was 9 at the time. Would. Do it now that she’s 11, no. Especially if it was costing 700

 if the dogs served you well and you`d like her around you for a couple more year then fair play 700 over 11 year around 64 quid a year

thats very true.....but vets are private practice.....no harm in seeing what others quote in the area....provided they have a good reputation

Depends how big an op it is on the dog.

 

Put my old bitch down few months back, Vet wanted to take her back leg off at age 11, I told them wouldn't put her through such a huge op. Doubt she'd have made it through it anyways. 

 

PTS, swift and painless, she sat in my arms whilst I blubbed like a little girl :(

To be honest it’s also about putting the bitch through it too 

It's a pretty routine op,  the speying is to reduce the risk of any more occurrences, plenty life left in the old girl 👍

Tbh mate, we have a very small pool of practices down here, all the local ones have been bought out and turned into bigger entities.

The woman I use, I have known her for over 20 years and she's sound, they also know my opinion of their pricing strategy 😁 

Not much point in travelling a hundred miles or so to save £100 or so, IMO.

Cheers, D.
