2. Shop Around
Do not settle with the first quote you receive if a high-cost procedure or treatment is required for your dog. The same service you seek can be rendered by different facilities at varying costs. For instance, an abdominal ultrasound may be quoted anywhere between $450 to $1,350 for the same dog and for the same reason. Make sure to get several quotes, but remember to check out the credentials of any facility or vet you're considering to ensure you don't obtain subpar care for your pet.
