The Price of a Spay

Anyone else getting sticker shock at how much it costs to be a "good" pet owner and get your dog, cat, or rabbit neutered? I just paid $200 to get my Wiem done. Oh, yep they charge by the pound now. Bigger the dog, bigger the sticker price.

And don't forget the options. We now have "just get in there and cut away assembly line style", "I don't know why the laser isn't used more on humans but it really helps the cuts heal faster for better, less painful recovery on pets" and "laproscopy makes the smallest incision and fastest healing times yet". Add $50 for each choice.

Is it my imagination or has the price gone up faster than inflation? I remember when a spay or neuter was less than $50 total.

And don't get me started on how much it costs to do rabbits.
