Excuse me, but IMO, there is a big difference between paying for
a vet's services, and overpaying him/her for a product that is
available elsewhere. My vet understands that not everybody has
the $$ to shell out $50.00 extra for medication that is
commonly available through catalogs at wholesale prices,
especially when the medication is one that the horse will have to
be on for the rest of it's life. My vet, being an honest person,
has absolutely no problem with writing out a prescription for me
under these circumstances as long as I continue to have him run a
*** panel on her twice a year to monitor her condition. The
fact that this person's vet refuses to do this simple favor for a
client tells me that he wants to make a profit off of a product
that he is re-selling. I don't mind paying my vet top dollar for
his services, and also for medication if the medication is one
that should only be administered by a vet. But something as
common as thyroid supplement? Give me a break.
Just my $.02.
