How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. James (St Paul,  Minnesota) paid $50 and said:

    My local vet charged me $50 for about 20-30 minutes. Was this fair?

    Was it worth it? Yes

  2. Carol Sloan (Sacramento,  California) paid $50 and said:

    to show better bowel formations. He wagged his tail and moved his hind legs after being with paralysis. He has what so many doxies have, back problems. He injured his back trying to jump up on astool to get to my bed.

    Was it worth it? Yes

  3. Tree Marcelynas (Seattle,  Washington) paid $200 and said:

    The initial intake with the one hour physical exam (via her hands) is still listed at approx $200, then you add another $85 for the first acupuncture session. If you get prescribed (as this is a licensed vet and can prescribe drugs or herbs) herbs that will be an additional cost. My herbs are 10 dollars a gram, I usually got 3 grams. My dog has hypothyroidism secondary to Cushings disease via a pituitary tumor.

    So life’s a challenge for us. I turned to this alternative vet for some support for my baby’s skin and fur and body. I have not seen any difference, in fact she got worse while we farted around. I wish I had just gone to the conventional doctor and I am upset that I wasn’t directed to head there by this vet. I feel like I have been milked for money and I do not get any information or help I don’t request. Waste of a LOT of money thus far.

    Was it worth it? Yes
