Kubrick's getting snipped

Kubrick's surgery is scheduled for Thursday and I am so nervous, it's ridiculous. I know that he will be fine, but I can't help it... he is my baby, after all. Plus I can't believe that he is 6 months already! Wow, time does fly.

I am having them do the pre-op blood work and when I heard how much it was going to cost for everything (including microchipping)... well, this was my face: LOL. I read through that thread of how much people paid for their neuters and I can attest that living in NY is a total rip off. I did call around and some places were cheaper, but Kubrick really likes his vet and they are HIGHLY recommended... not to mention that I live three blocks away from them, which is so convenient, so my fiance and I decided it was worth it. Hopefully I won't regret it.

Please send Kubrick your love as he has NO idea what he is in for. Poor baby.

The estimate is quite a surprise, isn't it? I was in the same position you are. I knew my vet was probably the most expensive around, but my dogs all love going there and really enjoy the staff, so it was worth a good experience and my peace of mind.

I understand your nervousness. Come here if you need some extra support until you get the call that Kubrick is out of surgery and recovering well.

Lina,
I felt the same way and plus Belle had to have 7 teeth removed!!! My vet even gave me the teeth to prove it. The last time I took the girls in, they just had blood work done and teters... by the time I got the bill, I was in shock! I thought wow, and they are totally healthy!!!

We will all keep our fur paws crossed for Kubrick!

Ryan are you SURE you want to know? LOL. You will all laugh at me, I think, if I tell. Let's just say I am over the $500 mark... am I a sucker for my baby or what?

BTW, we live in Greensboro, NC and went to check out a few Vets&prices. Wholly cow! But I guess it's still very little to what you guys in big cities pay! We decided to go with the nicest one and of course it's also the most expensive , we call it the Gucci-Vet.

Neuter (conventional): $228 (incl. FULL blood panel, exam, anesthesia, surgery, pain meds and overnight stay)
Neuter (Laser): $293.
Microchipping: $ 41

Maryam, it's amazing how expensive neutering is! Especially here in NY where people are used to over-paying for everything. LOL. I guess I don't feel as bad, though, because I do want to make sure that Kubrick is in good hands and I trust my vet (and his staff who adore Kubrick) completely. At least that's what I'm telling myself... I'm sure you're telling yourself the same thing if you are going with the Gucci-Vet. LOL.
