The vast majority of regular Pets members are Canadian. In "second place" are Americans. On any given day even our dollar differences can be significant.

Even within the province of Ontario where I live we see huge differences between rural and city costs. Just moving from a large city (Toronto) to a smaller city I have noticed a significant drop in price in services, tests and medication. However, the equipment available (ie. x-rays) in my current Vet is less than my old Vet. Does that justify a $20 discrepancy in "office visit/ consultation" fees? Not in my mind....

Not sure it's at all really comparable to be honest... There are so many variables. However, having standardized pricing models, <with the necessary checks and balances and allowances for overhead costs> sure would be nice!
