The cost of veterinary healthcare
The cost of veterinary healthcare has actually risen very little in the last 20 to 30 years. When compared to the cost of human healthcare, pet healthcare is not at all unreasonable. Keep in mind that your veterinarian is not only your pet's physician, but also its surgeon, radiologist, dentist, dermatologist, neurologist, ophthalmologist, psychiatrist, ear/nose/throat doctor, and pharmacist. Your bill is a reflection of the cost of maintaining remarkable facilities, equipment, and support personnel to provide the level of care that is expected in animal medicine today. Unlike our counterparts in human medicine, we receive no financing or grants from federal or state agencies.
