    So I decided this year I wanted to have my vet come out and look over the boys (4 wethers) check teeth, eyelids, overall health check and give them yearly vacc's, as I hate giving shots! Murphy also had to have a scur taken care of....vet sawed off the end of it. I also was not crazy about having to take the 4 into the vet. So I have been putting some of my extra spending money back to cover the expense.......hubby went by the vets office to pay the bill yesterday and to our surprise it was ONLY $56.00!!!!! I could not believe it......I had planned on it being anywhere from $100.00 - $180.00, or more.....so now I have extra money left, I'm going to antique auction this morning :greengrin: !!!!!

    Not expecting to have extra$ when a vet visits is always a good thing!!

    Hope you find some great treasures!

    Wow that's great! My vet would have charged me more for just taking a ride out. Enjoy the extra cash! :dance:

    That is very cheap.

    I was surprised at how cheap goat shots were when my vet came out for a meet and greet after I aquired my two little devils.....

    Yea I could use a vet like that. I just payed $95 for one Bo-se shot for my doe. Farm call + exam (although he didn't touch her) + bo-se shot.

    Bo-se was $22.

    I seriously can't afford that for all my does so I hope he gets to the point that he will just give me the shot.
