Today the BBC will broadcast the results of a K9 Media inspired vet fees survey. The results highlight the – sometimes massive – range of fees being charged for ’standard’ procedures. As much as £100 difference in the cost of a standard neutering procedure, in the SAME county! I believe the vet fees hot potato is not going to go away any time soon. As pet insurers increasingly aim their fire at vets for performing ‘un-needed procedures’ on animals who are financially protected and more and more pet owners exchange information on the huge variance in medicine costs, we have to ask: will the vet fee issue lead to an erosion of trust? And if so, what can we do to stop it?
