My thoughts are that if they can justify the amount against a service or a product you have had then fine but its seems to me that they dont know exactly what its for so how can they expect you to pay.

 

I would ask them to be a bit more specific before you pay anything as you have paid you bill already.

 

Tread carefully though as you dont really want to fallout with them as you never know when you may need them.

Interesting this . When we moved house the boys (our cats) annual innoculations doubled in terms of costs, so I queried it. Vet showed me actual cost and it seems previous vets had made a big mistake.

 

Not sure of your issue as is edited.

 

But Vets charges do need to be looked at.

 

Am now getting suspicious of my vet as every time one of our pets goes in it seems to have an injection of something which is probably to cure something that they might be able to fight off in the first place. Suppose it's playing safe which I'm preparred to pay for like all of us.

 

Odd thing is that each time we visit he asks about financial situation, which is nice but makes you wonder.

 

I would say though he was exceptionally good with one of the bunnies who happened to meet with an accident at the same time as wifey's sister died.

 

So you never know.

i have pet insurance good job i do because they say if an op is needed that could cost thousands but what gets me is why can they not do a direct claim with petplan would be so much easier and save me having to find the money i have to ask do they really care or is the vet business profit driven too

Think I'd go back and query. Bunny had 6 X rays where I had to cover costs which was £25 and had to be put to sleep.But then it's down to the practicse. I have a very good relationship with them as was theier first customer and cat saw fit to explore unfinished consulting room and ended up stuck behind the wall. I'd go back and query it asking for a justification of the charge myself.

 

Where I'm a hard person of questionable parentage or not, I think a grand for this work is a bit over the top.

 

However, what price do you put on the pets?

 

Mine are treated like the a part of the familly as most people do so what do you do?

 

I value it with the boys as how long does the vet spend in relation to fixing them and their expertise. Afterall he's only a doctor working in the dark which I pay a premium for.

 

But a grand for his time and equipment is going over the top me thinks.

Hi Pompey

I have had all my dogs in the past insured with Pet Plan. They were always willing to deal with the vet directly and then the vet me billed me for whatever the excess was. I think it is your vet who wants the money more quickly from you- although Pet Plan always paid out within a week or two.

Hi PF

 

I'm surprised you had to pay upfront with a petplan policy - as far as I know most vets are happy to claim direct with Petplan. Mine do, although they only do that with two companies because there are now so many.

 

On fees, its does say in the pet insurance section that fees vary according to where you live in the country although insurance policies don't vary the amounts they pay out.

 

My vet is very fair with me. I've noticed he always charges less for my one uninsured cat than he does my insured cats.

Bit pointless deleting the original post isn't it?

 

Hmm, does seem a bit odd. Not sure there is anything we can do. I dont recall what the content of the post was.. obviously something to do with Vet fees.

On second thoughts will leave it in the debt forums as it concerns payment demands for the above.

 

I wish people wouldnt do this-its just work that the team would be better doing elsewhere.
