A new study by Bayer Animal Health trying to find out why pet owners are reducing the number of trips to the vet has found six main causes:
- the recession
- fragmentation of vet services
- availability of pet health info online
- feline resistance (kitty hates going to the vet)
- don’t feel need for annual checkup
- cost of vet care
I can certainly believe the last reason. This site allows pet owners to post reviews of their vets and while most people are very happy with the treatment they receive, they consistently gripe about the costs.
