I had to go out of town last week, and I had to put Lightning and Stomps in a kennel instead of having a housesitter in, as Stomps is on restricted activity (more on that in another post) and I knew my regular housesitter wasn't up for the challenge. I knew their kennel cough vaccinations were overdue, so the kennel, which is on the same property as a veterinary clinic, said they'd take them over to get their vaccination. When I went to pick them up five days later, at $20/day, the bill was $450!!! Turns out each dog was charged for a vet visit, which I can understand, then for a WELLNESS EXAM to make sure they were okay to give the vaccinations, then for vaccinations for rabies, distemper and kennel cough. I was only told they needed kennel cough. Then Stomps scratched his nose on something, so they took him to the vet again to have his nose wiped off and antibiotic ointment placed on it. All to the tune of $450. I'm one of those people who really doesn't want my dogs vaccinated unless absolutely necessary, for a variety of reasons, but since they had to be in a kennel I gave in. But I really feel like the clinic and the vet clinic took advantage of the fact that I wasn't there to ask questions, and they certainly didn't tell me in advance that I'd have to pay almost $60/dog before the vet would even give them a shot. I'm absolutely livid. Am I wrong to be so upset? P.S. This vet clinic is not my normal vet clinic (for good reason), so they had no idea whether he was up to date on his rabies and distemper.
