Why are vets fees so high?
Vets’ fees are unregulated: it’s an open market, with vets competing against each other. In theory, owners can easily shop around to find the best value. By definition, this means that vets’ fees are very likely to be fair: if fees are too high, people are free to move elsewhere for lower fees.
What happens when you cant pay a vet bill?
If you proceed with treatment but can’t pay the bill, ask if your vet will allow you to repay it on an installment plan. If you decide to use a credit card or a personal loan to pay your vet bill, make sure you understand the debt repayment terms as well as any potential impact on your credit.
