Often people here complain about the cost of vet care and while I agree it is expensive I have never felt my vet is out to get as much money as possible as he does things to cut the cost all the time. I also know that running a vet clinic is expensive as we all want them to have the latest and best equipment but that does cost a lot of money . We want the staff to be well trained and know what they are doing too and that cost money and then add in building costs and taxes and a host of other items.. this article will address it from a vets point of view and I can say the vets I do know are not in it for the money as they are not rich.
<p><a href="http://www.askavetquestion.com/why-are-vets-so-expensive.php"> why are vets so expensive?</a> An article by veterinarian, Dr. Marie.</p>

Sorry I just tried the link and Can not get it to work don't know why as the end of the article gave it as a link to the article so it could be shared

I don't begrudge the money a good vet costs. My pets are so important to me and my family and I budget accordingly so it is never a matter of having them do without medication, tests or procedures if it will prolong their lives and/or keep them healthy.
