We had been patients at Countryside Vet for over 3 years, when they diagnosed our Dog Lewie, with cancer. After telling us the devestating news, my husband and I proceeded to the counter, where the receptionist told us that our bill was $432., my husband and I who had received an estimate of $230 earlier that day, questioned the high fee. The receptionist told us that Clavamox, the antibiotic that they perscribed was $165 dollars, Deramaxx, the antiinflamitory was $92.00. We pleaded with the receptionist that we only could afford $300, and requested payment arrangements for the remainder, which they refused, due to ""policy"". We then requested that we pay $300 and return with the remainder the following week, they again refused. The receptionist suggested that she call the vet tech to see which medicine that she would recommend, since we could only afford one. Even though we wanted to give our dying dog everything that he needed, We only left with the Deramxx. After the inital shock had calmed, I realized that I probably could get the antibiotic online, after a bit of research, i found both perscriptions for more than half of the price that this vet wanted to charge. When I requested a refund on the unused portion, they again denied my request. When I requested that they approve an online perscription, they told me that they did not feel that I would be able to get them online, and even if I could, there would be a fee.
Cons: Over priced and No consideration
