No over-reaction there. I'd be mad as heck.
My dogs are still young so it hasn't become an issue yet for us... However, I usually run into a lot of trouble here regarding the vaccination schedule. Our previous vet with our previous dog insisted on FULL annual vaccinations. I was younger then -- and really too scared to put up much of a fight... But each time I would go in for the (required) annual rabies shot and tell him I was only there for rabies... And when we'd leave I'd be informed that he had the full course of shots. After eight years of this I was finally able to get out of the clinic that year with only a rabies shot --- by dressing in rags and telling the staff and vet repeatedly and upfront that I could not afford anything but the rabies shot.
