About how much was your dog’s last annual check up in Park Ridge? Including shots, monthly meds (heartworm/flea tick) etc. I’m just trying to make myself feel better about how much I just spent!

For a regular check-up--one dog, about $400, which includes the $100 for heartgard. we stopped doing nexgard bc she was puking it up, so we just take our chances with topical---that i do for 6 months, which is way cheaper than that nexgard.

I refuse to go over $200. Unless my dog is having an issue then I obviously take care of that.

Depending on where you go, size of dog, 1 yr or 3 yr vaccines and preventive your visit can range anywhere from $200-$700

I started ordering Heartgard and Nexgard from Chewy. Cheaper than getting it at the vet.

We have Nationwide insurance. $250 annual deductible. Pay $80/month for a x-large breed dog and that includes wellness care and all major illnesses or accidents. It includes all medications as well such as heart guard, etc. We also order most meds and foods from Chewy and Pet Meds. Well worth it.

I spent 500. bucks this summer to determine my very old cat was in great shape. While that was good news, was pretty shocked by price of blood panels.

Around $500 for annual visit including bloodwork and year supply of heart guard and flea/tick medicine. I think that blood work was $150 of the total.

I went to Animal Care Hospital of Schiller park. My annual visit (all shots and nail clipping) before heart worm pills was $90. The heart worm medicine is another $30 or so. My family dog is 16 and has gone there his entire life. I now have a 1 year old pup and take her there. It isn’t the fanciest but the vet is honest, reasonable and does a great job. I didn’t actually realize how cheap my vet was until I read these comments!

Just as an FYI what Banfield offers is not true pet insurance. It’s more of discount plan that covers office visits and vaccines. Then depending on the plan you sign up for it covers spay/neutering, teeth cleaning and your discount on meds and non-covered services varies. The reason I want to point this out is that we have used Banfield plans for years BUT we would have also saved over $40k (yes $40k) in bills for 3 dogs if we had insurance. Key is need to get it when they are puppies before anything is diagnosed aka allergies.

Just brought our two dogs in and they were both due for everrrryythinnnng! We did the 3 year rabies shots and canine influenza vaccines, bordatella and Lyme vaccines, bloodwork and physical— $730. Crazy, but it was for two dogs and the next couple years should be cheaper since we paid the big bucks for the 3 year rabies.

You can do low cost vaccine clinics at pet stores , you can order way cheaper flea tick and heart worm meds online and have your vet verify the order, nail trims at the groomer are like 10-20$, that way you can just pay for an annual wellness exam at your vet. coming from someone who spent 6600$ on bilateral knee surgery for my pup . I feel ya!
