Advice on animal health and its cost

Veterinary medicine appears to be slowly approaching the level of sophistication that we would expect ourselves from our GP. The increased care and number of treatments that we can give our pets can come at a hefty price. You can find some specific examples of the most recent bills for pet care we have collected in the table below or go to a specific vet prices page for more detailed info on a wider range of treatments. Please click on the links on the left hand side of the table to go to a page with more specific details.
