Have just been to the vets with a nearly 4 year old guinea pig – $130 later I now have to give eye drops 4x daily for 5 days and oral medicine 1x daily for 3 days. Does anyone else find themselves spending heaps of $ and time caring for cheap pets?

  • Vets are expensive. We went to the Vet with our first rabbit but then I decided I won’t do that again, especially since a dog killed it just after we payed a big fat vet bill ! We had several rabbit and guinea pigs after that and I didn’t visit the vet with them.

  • Vets are expensive. Doesn’t matter what sort or size of pet you have, pets and vets cost a fortune

  • We had two dogs, only one now, both were given to us along with bowls, beds etc. Vet bills are so expensive! Luckily, touch wood, we haven’t had a bill we haven’t been able to pay thankfully. Hoping it stays that way

  • We always put money away for potential vet expenses – the just in case something goes wrong fund!

  • We have two dogs that were given to us and yes we have huge vet bills, but so worth it

  • Yep! But they are members of the family and loved so those bet bills get paid. :)

  • no fortunately not. at least you are caring for it :)
