OK. I was sorting through paperwork today and found a recent bill for taking Flowerbelle and Tuxedo in to the vet.
I don't know how much a regular vet visit is or if this is a discount or what, because we took them in at the same time (we usually take more than 1 in at once just because now with 7 it's too much of a PIA to take them one at a time).
Exam - Multipet $44.10
Tuxie got a Sr. Wellness Screen - $135
Flowerbelle's "Superchemistry/CBC/T4" was $133.97
Tuxie's Depo injection: $33.97
Flowerbelle's fecal exam: $27.94
The rabies vaccine: $25.85 (Flowerbelle was due)
Flowerbelle's full cost with exam, blood work, rabies & fecal: $231.97
Tuxie's full cost with exam, blood work, and depo: $213.07
We have 7 cats. They all go annually. Tuxie goes - probably 3 - 6 times a year, though he only gets the full bloodwork once a year, he gets at least a CBC every time he goes.
Five of the 7 get senior panels done each time.
Spooky gets a dental every 6 months. Don't have that bill handy. (She usually gets at least one tooth pulled every year).
The only reason we had the fecal done on Flowerbelle was because she had SO many parasite problems when rescued and she just never gains weight - we just wanted to double-check and make sure.
Thank GOODNESS we pay the vet every time we get paid. I'm so glad we discussed doing that with them, because we've had to use it at least once a year for something or another. We always try to build up a nice credit - and, of course, we pay for the exams at the time when we can - but the money's there if we don't have it when they need to go. But right now we've still got a $600+ credit at the vet. TRUST ME, we'll need it soon enough.
