Vets demands

Recommended Posts

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.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
