It is possible that these people are the best veterinarians on the planet. Perhaps their healing touch is so amazing that animals everywhere are cured merely by passing over the threshold.
At these prices, they had better be. A well pet visit came with an estimate for dental work (removing two teeth) that was OVER $1700! A trip to the highly rated vet down the street saw the same work done, quite effectively, for $400. That is less than 1/4 the cost.
Based on what I have read online, it appears as if the VCA corporate offices mandate some pricing schedule that is completely out of line with reality.
At these prices, Dr. Doolittle himself should be working there.
