so i have been looking for a vet for dungy and my roommate said i should take him to bainfield pet hospital... they are in petsmart... she has insurance with them and uses for her cats.
she pays like $22 a month or something and she thinks it is great... BUT...

I was looking at her bill sheet from when she got the cats fixed and it had the total to be $800 but the insurance made it cost only like 40 or something and i was shocked... idk where they got a price of $800 dollars to fix a cat... if that was the reg price everywhere i think that there would be a lot more animals running around today.  In indiana we have a clinic for fixing and it is by like the age and weight of the cat it is called FACE.

I wasnt planning on taking dungy here but i feel like they are making everything seem very expensive and in the end u are paying what a regular vet would charge u

As far as having Dungy fixed... i recommend your local humane society.

It was less then $100 for me to get jessie fixed when she was 7 mos old.

The banfields here in texas are high priced IMO. If you dont have a regular vet yet, then i would agree and see about going to the local shelter/humane society.

Humane society or maybe ask around to other friends relatives to see who they use. The petsmart vet sounds quite expensive IMO. OR you can do what I did, and call around for prices combined with friends referrals. Good luck finding a good reasonably priced vet that you like.

IMO any vet office run out of a pet store is gonna be based on money, not care.  Here we have the VCA Animal Hospital chain.  They are pretty good and, for here, are one of the least expensive vets.

we have VCA in Indiana

so i just pulled up the bill from my friends cats... 2 cats... 1 spay 1 neuter... it has 2 brackets... a with insurance and a w/o...w/o insurance would have cost her supposedly 1,400 dollars... HOLY COW!!! It cost her $22 a month for insurance and insurance made the surgery cost $56... a total of $78... it is $20 dollars a cat at FACE... I feel like it is a total scam where they are finding places to charge u.

I wont have to worry about fixing dungy for awhile but i know where not to go

VCA is not a very well run company and they overcharge on too manythings. The e-vet i worked for was taken over by VCA and the prices of all our services tripled as soon as the buyout took place. i left shortly after because i felt it was wrong on more than one account. Lots of things i didnt like about it. I have not visited a VCA hospital since then either.
