Yesterday I went to the vet. I had to have a urine analysis because I spend a lot of time in the litter box. I had to have blood work because they want to do a dentistry again and I had have a vaccine. Gemini had only an exam. Our total was $360 in vet bills for all of this.
My estimated dentistry is between $675 and $975 depending upon how many extractions I have. They charge by the time it takes for this so of course it is a wide range. My human remembers when an expensive dentistry was about $350 for a large dog (more anesthetic which is the most expensive).
We realize that everything in Seattle costs more than in Portland and it’s been a good 8 years since she has had a cat who needs a teeth cleaning. We are wondering if this is a normal price range for dental (and general vet care) or if this seems high to the rest of the blogosphere? It’s tough to call around to vets to find out, because it’s hard to know what they include in any one given fee so we thought we’d ask cat owners if our veterinary expenses seem higher than usual.
