If you are refering to the puppy double injection , then the later look about right. I haven't had a bitch for years so don't know the price of a spay, but as a dental cost £120 for Monty, I'd say the price you are quoted is very cheap.

Yes, to my vets prices....thereabouts....not much in it. :flwr:

oh good, have to think of a good pet insurance now!!!! :D

Very cheap. In Essex you can expect to pay half of that again.

Micro chipping cost £20

Vaccines cost £50

Spaying depends on the weight of the dog but it's still more expensive than yours.

When you go for insurance make sure you go for one with lifelong condition cover. I believe lots of people are going for Marks and spencer because they offer this.

I am with Argos and they used to do lifelong condition cover but changed their underwriters, the first I knew of it was when they refused to pay a continuation of a claim :shock: :(

My spay for Chloe will cost around £120. Vaccs and chipping were covered by the breeder, but I had to pay £20 for worming- and then the week after the same practice- but new management- charged me £20 for consultation.

My goodness Drontal Plus is under £2 per tablet from vet-medic.com. One tablet per 10kg of dog and P&P free if you order by phone (next day delivery usually)

My goodness - everyone seems to be finding my customers! I recenty spent the evening at a conference with the owner of Vetmedic.com!

Well, I'd be very happy to get the worming sachets things online if I can- as long as it's definitely ok, and they're the right doses for a Cav? Guidance here please :D Since this practice is the nearest to me, I'd rather stay with them. They've always been good- but if I can save £120 p.a. on worming, I'd be glad to. I have got Johnson's worming syrup, but I'm sure it's not as good as the real thing :?

Marks and Spencer are very good, you can have a no excess policy if you want too.


6th November 2006, 09:33 PM
True, though I'm not totally convinced that's how it works in practice. I signed up for the no excess, and that's what it says in the paperwork- but I still have to pay £50??? :yikes
