It varies they have fee 1,2,3 and 4. You pay fee 1 for the first visit for an illness whch is about 22 then it goes down for each follow up visit for a specific illness I think visit 4 is 11

We dont have consultation fees as such - just pay for treatment. So Milo to vets, VHD, weight and health check and nails cut cost 17.

When he was ill and he went in daily for care while I was at work it was about 2.50 a day and then the check ups were free.

We are really lucky!!

23 for a rabbit, 16.75 for a follow up.

Ours is quite pricey, but they have a hospital, overnight staff on duty, lots of levels of staff to pay for and we live in an area where rent and rates are ridiculously high.

Its about 22 for the first, 19 for the second and 15 for any re-examnines after that. They quite often charge 5 for quick small animal checks or regular injections like betamox for abscesses. If somebody comes in to get their cat or dog wormed they just charge for the wormer. I think they are pretty good, for the facilities etc.

I've never been charged for consultation with my vet, although we have only been there for vaccinations and neutering. I think if we went in and nothing was needed we'd get a charge. :love: love my vets being so cheap.

He's not an exotic vet though, but he said he looked after the rabbits at uni and the first thing he said to me was to litter train my bunny (he had urine stains when I got him) and reccommend excel pellets.

10.15for first appt then follow-ups free. For vaccinations it's only the price of the vacc itself. And then the VAT of course:shock:

Ours charges about 40. As we took in a bunny that had dreadful health issues which included cancer etc - they've made a fortune out of me :!:

My previous vet was about 40 ish for the consultation, my new one is 12 (that wasn't why I changed, just an added bonus when I found out!)

Between 12 and 15 I think.

The anaesthetic for the dental is the worst-that alone is 63 pounds!

Apologies, can't find pound sign on my phone!

It's around 16 for a rabbit consultation, other small furries are around the same price but they haven't ever charged me for a 2nd or subsequent visit regarding the same problem - just for the meds given.

28/29 for a consultation. Think I might have to move to a cheaper part of the country :lol:

35 for every consult :shock:

Pricey, as is everything here, but when Mimi had head tilt I went in and spoke to my vet almost daily and never got charged for it :D

20, but when you get jabs done they give them a thorough going over at the same time - teeth, claws etc My vets are dear but it's a 24hr animal hospital and all of the staff their are absolutely amazing so I don't mind paying extra.

ours charge 24 ish for the 1st rabbit, then 21 for 2nd rabbit, then 19 and 17 ish...

when we first went there we always got charged the consult fees but after a few months they started charging just once for both of them, then when we were there all the time because of the ongoing respiratory problems they waived the consult fees for us altogether.

vaccinations they don't charge a consult fee to us either. :)

25 but has probably gone up since the VAT rise.

I think it stays the same even for repeat visits. :(
