I need to take my (outside) cat to the vet b/c he seems to have some trouble with his gums and/or mouth. Can anyone tell me approximatly how much an office visit runs for a cat?(I know it depends on what they have to do to him.) Also - is one place cheaper than the other? I want to get him taken care of but since I've lost my job it's really going to hurt finacially...

call the dyer county animial hospitol. they are really nice and they will be up front about the cost. They always tell me what something is going to cost and I can choose to go with it or not before they do it. They should be able to tell you about how much an office visit would be to see the vet.
to much

The cost of an office visit here in dyersburg is very high, but if you go to Trenton it is not expensive at all. The vet there cares also and is not all ablout the money. When the torandos hit Millsfield and surrounding areas he came out and was trying to help people with injured animals. Don't think I seen DR Dickerson or Crisp or White out and about checkin on the animals. Tells me he is a man who cares so if I were you I would go to Trenton.

Dr. Crisp is a great vet and I think the cheapest in town. Trenton and Ripley vets are both cheaper, though.

I think the cost for just the visit at Crisp's office is about 50 dollars.

He cares a lot about animals. I have called him at home before and he has been nothing but kind and caring.

I take my dogs to Dr. Martin at the Animal Care clinic. I think they are wonderful there and Dr. Martin also.
The prices are a problem but maybe if you called them they could work something out with you. Maybe pay half and spread out the rest. Just call and see what they say.

In all fairness "She won't bark" doesn't really sound like an emergency. I probably wouldn't have left a Sunday with my family if that was the only concern, either.

My dog had injured her eye. He came right away and it turned out to be nothing. Just cherry eye and we made an appointment for her to have surgery the next day.

If it's serious, he'll come in. "She won't bark," just doesn't sound serious and if she had a tapeworm, then that's YOUR issue. You should have been taking better care of her. They aren't big enough to try and crawl out unless they've been in there several months. You're more to blame than he is for her suffering.

All the clinics in Dburg are MUCH higher than surrounding counties. Don't know about the Bells clinic (never been there) but the one in Trenton is very good. They truely care about animals and it don't cost an arm and leg. The best doctor has left from there and opened a clinic in Alamo tho and I don't know the name or number to his clinic...Dr. McHugh is his name. Very good doc! Also, a co-worker uses clinic in Rutherford. He really likes them and their prices are also about 1/2 of Dburg prices. I LOVE MY PETS!

Why is it that Dyer County vets are so much more expensive than the other places? Has anyone ever asked that question?

Exactly! Greed for one and maybe the new fancy buildings they have here. Other counties have use buildings or old houses converted to buisinesses.

Forget the vet, see a psy doc (for you)...moron...your dog doesn't talk, it barks...oh no yours doesn't because you let it get a tapeworm. lol

I used to go there and thought they were great but because of a money issue I don't use them anymore. I needed to get my dogs claws trimmed and called ahead to check the price. They told me it would be $9. I took my dog in and asked them to trim his nails. When I went to pick him up they told me the bill was over $180.(they had done all sorts of tests that I didn't authorize) I was so shocked that I wrote them a check, got my dog and left. I wish now that I had refused to pay. I feel that they took advantage of me. I will never go back again. It was very disappointing though because I always thought they really cared about the animals and not just the money. I was proven wrong.

I think we all know by now everything is about the almighty dollar. I can only tell you that I love the VET in Trenton, and his staff. He truly cares about the animals and their owner's. I think Dr Crisp and half of his staff are rude, snobby and he thinks he a tad bit above the ones who come in his office. I would advise him and a few others' like him if it were not for us animal lovers they might be in the soup line somewhere. Don't snub us we are who pays your bills for such nice facilities. I promise you you do not need those big fancy buildings because the animals who come there can't tell the difference and we need your knowledge not vaulted ceilings and cushioned chairs. Go to hte vet who cares and doesn't think just about money! Visit Trenton Animal Clinic and yes I am advertising for them because he truly cares about our family pet.

I was going to mention Huntingdon in my post yesterday but I figured it would be too far for dyer co. people to drive to. I have and do go there and they are WAY cheaper. For example, I have a 40-50 lb. dog that I wanted to get spayed so I called Dyersburg and they go by weight (HA!) and it was to the tune of $250. I called Huntingdon and viola they said it would be $85. BIG DIFFERENCE! I have mentioned a lot of vets in my 2 posts but I use one for my dogs, one for my horses, my daughter USED to work for one in Dburg and my other daughter dates a guy from the Huntingdon clinic.....so I have tried them all. LOL. My final assessment- best care & price would be Trenton or Huntingdon. I LOVE MY PETS!
