Q:  Why does it cost more to go to my vet than the doctor?

A:  Although modern medical technology and newer pharmaceuticals continue to make veterinary care more expensive, it remains an extreme value when compared to human medical bills.  It may seem like it is less expensive to visit your doctor than your veterinarian, but that’s because you probably have health insurance coverage of one type or another.  Your co-pay or deductible is only part of the bill.
