I took my dog to a vet in Scarborough 2 weeks ago, for hip test.

After x -rayed 4 times, he told me:" your dog has HD, no good". then, he charged me $278

(***He told me that, if my dog had no HD, plus certificate from OVC, it would cost me little bit less than $500)

I took the same dog to another vet in Richmond Hill after, hip test again. Guess what, excellent hip !!!plus the certificate from OVC and everything together, only $170 !!!

$500 - $170, What a big difference!!! The first vet has 3 hospitals in downtown Toronto, one in Scarborough, big business, big money, be careful people, watch your wallet!

Yes I have found huge differences in vet prices. Depends on whether your vet drives a Lexus or an Accord I guess :shrug:
