    As in a veterinarian not some GI Joe type.

    Had to take my dog to the vet out of hours emergency callout surgery on Saturday afternoon as she started bleeding from the nose. All is well with her now which is good.

    Anyhow I was expecting the out of hours examination to be in the £100 ball park figure. Got this invoice this morning. £256 inclusive of VAT, with the Blood Test coming in at a whopping £130! :mad:

    I 've paid the £122 out of hours examination fee, but am now contesting the cost of the bloody ( see what I did there! ) blood test. As I was not advised that it would be this high. Previous blood tests have been around half this amount.

    Needless to say, this will be my chosen profession in my next life.

    It was my career of choice as a kid, didn't make the grade at A level to progress!

    Hope the 4 legged one is better.

    the ex wanted to be a nurse...until the ol' puppers went into the vet and had her lens removed with a scalpel after the cat put a claw through it.
    ya - been through a few bills here - besides the already expensive neutering, spays and shots, the thuggy cat has had a few surgeries for scrapping a raccoon and a coyote.

    it's definitely important to shop around for a good vet that's kind patient and cairing, but reasonably priced and will do payment installments

    hope the pooch is a-ok

    Make sure you become a vet for house pets; pet owners seem to be fair game.

    The guys who treat farm animals have to work their asses off at all sorts of unsociable hours for less monetary reward, although I imagine the job itself is probably more rewarding, spiritually speaking. :)

    I recently enlisted the services of a Surveyor, to get an official valuation of our house, he was with us for about an hour, £540, kerching!

    The out of hours vets that take over the PDSA premises at night charge crazy prices,when my dog was a pup he managed to jam a stick
    into the roof of his mouth, they gave him blood tests and xrays and antibiotics and ended up charging over £700.They know owners will pay
    anything to look after their furballs.Fortunately Churchill had to foot the bill and the next one for £500 when he was vomiting for 2 hours solid.
    Local vets earn their money though, since they castrated him he hates them with a vengence and at 7 stone he scares the shit out them

    If it turns out the blood work is cheaper in normal hours then I will fight it. If not, I guess one I have to take on the chin. BTW derailing my own thread, but South Korea! Wow! FOOTBALL PIE! :D

    Lol, this is me as a kid. Whatever I was afraid of, I wished my mom had been of this profession, especially a doctor, nurse or a dentist :)

    Hope your dog is okay! I'm very sensitive for dogs. Always dreamed to be animal cop.
