Ok... so we saw Eleanor our vet today and she said we have several choices for the MRI and referral. she couldn't get hold of one of them though, Mr Andrew Robinson from Dovecote. because they're on holiday or something. so the prices would be:

Geoff Skemitt: consult 195 and MRI 1800

Clare Rusbridge: consult 245 and MRI 1200

AHT: 2000

Willows: 2000

i don't know much about any of them except Clare, so could anyone with any experience tell me anything about the others?

Plus has anyone been to another Vet for the MRI? As Eleanor is still calling people as there are a few more she knows.

Also i've found out that we're only covered for 7500 per condition, which is really annoying because now we can't change it :/

Hope you guys came give me a bit of advice because all my parents are going on is cost and petrol :/

Are you insured with Pet Plan, if so, it is normally a specified amount per year. Even so, the mri is the most expensive part, even with the medication you should have enough insurance. The first year of Molly being ill, we spent 6,000 just trying to find out what was wrong with her. So you have a good head start.
If you have relatives in Wimbledon and your parents can help you with the journey, I would not hesitate, Clare Rusbridge is fantastic !

I have been to all of them except the Willows over the years, they have all been very good.

I've heard good things about the Willows too.

With family in Wimbledon, it probably makes sense to go to Clare Rusbridge :biggrin:
