Vet visits can vary. My Sami dog’s first visit was probably closer to 50$; most adoption places give you a free exam and rabies shot voucher. But the little dog’s was higher because he needed shot booster and tests. He wasn’t from as good an org tho
Hmm, OK. The places I’ve been looking at vary a bit in what’s included in the adoption fees; most include vaccinations (excluding rabies), spaying/neutering, and a microchip, but not all include the first vet check up. So, allowing $200 for the first vet visit might not be a bad idea, just to make sure that I’ve definitely got enough to cover it if it’s not included. I should carry on looking around and scope out the good organisations then, I reckon! Thank you :)
So far today, I’ve got up, written a big long ‘to-do’ list, and taken an hour to do the first item. You wouldn’t think that printing off two pages of graphs to stick in my lab book would take an hour, but when you use the library printers and your document won’t send to the colour printer, it does. Turns out there was a problem with the printer, so the nice member of staff used the staff printer to print out my graphs for me.
Investigation of my puppy fund reveals that I am about $25 short of the estimated initial fees to get a dog. (Anyone with a dog: does the first checkup with the vet really cost $200? That figure is Canadian dollars, but amounts in American dollars are good as an estimate.) However, I’ve been offered more work with uni open days here, so I can get another £25 from that. When I get paid for all the open days, I will have £75, which is currently $138!
