Pretty annoying Egg, but vets have virtually been given carte blanche to charge what they want, since pet insurance was introduced.
Another recent story about my sisters dog. Needed to be a confirmed diagnosis of cancer. Admittedly it was an Irish Wolfhound, i.e. means large. She took it to Leahurst Vetinary on one day and picked it up the next, to be told there was nothing to be done. Given a supply of pills to reduce any pain. Cost.........£1,900
She had to have it put down the following day as it had walked in the vets but 24 hours later, couldn't stand. Another £700 for vet's home visit and cremation.
All covered by insurance of course, but more than keeping a car on the road.
