    $800.00 in US dollars to have two teeth removed ?!?! I paid $235.00 for Heidi, she's 10, she had 12 extractions and the others cleaned and her gums scaled & cleaned . I cannot believe a vet charges that much in the UK . WoW ! I have four dogs and two cats and I'd never be able to afford them, if our vet charged that much . I'm so sorry DJ I'm sympathizing with you , not questioning you .

    Heidi was on antibiotics too . I refused the bloodwork to make sure she'd make it through surgery, I knew she would . I truly believe its a money making scheme .

    How old is your kitty ? And how playful is she/he ? I just know my Heidi , shes a long haired dachshund . Looks like Disneys Lady ! When Dr Amanda told ne 12 teeth had been removed, I almost went into cardiac arrest . I thought the bill would be over $800.00 , when she told me $235.00 and that was with her meds, I almost had another . I wish your dear kitty well . They really are family .
    Now my Hans , he's 15 and his teeth are horrible, but I'd never put him through surgery . He'd die on the table . poor little mite is partially deaf & blind . He's my short haired black dachie .

    ahhh, my dear late puddie had her mood swings . When she had to be put down at 18 and they gave her that 1st shot to calm her , I cried, I said, my god puddie if you could have been this way all the time . She got so loveable !
    Only you know your dear kitty Jeff in regards to that dang senseless blood work . As I said heidi, yes, Hans, no way .
    mine all like their special nono food .

    Awwww, Jeff! Your poor kittie and your poor holiday fund!!! Now I must say that though I would never hesitate to get my animals the treatment they needed howver much it costs (like you), I have to say that sounds pricey! The only thing I roughly have to go on is, 2 years ago my bearded collie had a huge chunk taken out of her by a so-called groomer. She had to have a GA, blood tests, and an op that removed the dead skin and stitched it up again, as well as an aftercare check-up. It cost me 125. And locally they are quite an expensive vet as they are a national chain. Maybe for the price of another consultation you could get a second opinion?
