My rabbit (Hatter) has recently been experiencing some hard times with not eating and being pretty lethargic. After a visit to our local vet I found out that one of his back molar teeth has overgrown and started stabbing into his gums, as well as being excruciatingly painful for him to eat anything hard. After some X-Rays they told me they would only have to shave it down, since his tooth seems to be growing normally; the problem is, the vet I'm going to takes me and my family for idiots.
They've tried to completely milk us for money on two separate occasions: Taking two X-Rays two separate days (for literally no reason), and giving anesthesia to Hatter twice on two separate days just to examine his teeth even though they had done it once before. I've stopped them those two times, but now that a final estimate has come for shaving his teeth, I can't help but feel like they're milking me for money again. The estimate is $803, so my question is: How much did you have to pay (if you had to), is there an alternate to this, should I switch vets asap? I would really like to have some advice =(
Ok, thank you.
The vet was extremely overcharging us and I have an appointment for another vet. Thank you very much for your feedback and response =3
Hatter is currently eating soft food and is doing just fine until his tooth can get shaved.
Hi! I've also decided to take my bunny to a vet, but the problem is that I don't know how to find a reliable specialist. I'v read a lot of reviews trying to figure out what makes a good vet, but no success.. I'm still searching. Can you please help?
